Talks in the group by Invited Speakers

Every Thursday we try to have a guest speaker for our group meetings. Most speakers are experts in areas of computational photography, graphics, vision, signal processing, or optics. However, we often have speakers from a wide range of other areas (artists, architects, photographers, etc).

If you are in the Boston/Cambridge area and would like to give a talk and present your work, we would love to hear from you; please contact us.

Here are some tips for our speakers:

  • Prepare to speak for not more than 35 minutes, and keep the rest of the time for discussions.
  • Familiarize yourself with our research interests and try to challenge us with what you’d like to see in future cameras and imaging.
  • Try to engage the students in your talk
  • Avoid talking about just one project; instead try to give a wide overview of your group/research, or give a 10-15 minute overview followed by more detailed description of 1-2 projects.
  • As a tradition, the speaker spends the first 2-5 minutes with a lesson of the week. This is usually graduate student advice on doing good research, but can be anything you want along the lines of ‘What I Wish I Knew When I Started Grad School’.
  • When: 4.00PM-5.30 PM on Thursdays
  • Where: E14-393.
