Image and Signal Analysis Journal Club

Fall 2016/Spring 2017

This seminar is organized by Drs. Cao and Lou. If you have questions about this seminar please contact Dr. Yan Cao. The journal club meets on Tuesdays from 10-11am in SLC 1.204 this spring. The members include both graduate and undergraduate students. Each week one of the students presents a paper in the field of image and signal analysis of his/her interest. The chosen paper will be announced prior to the meeting. The goal of the journal club is to introduce graduate and undergraduate students to image and signal analysis research, and create an open venue for friendly but lively scientific discussion.
