CCIS presents the First Annual Graduate Student Appreciation Week! This week is dedicated to celebrating our community of graduate students and thanking you for the hard work and contributions you make to our college. Check out a variety of free and fun events planned just for you!
March 29 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Speaker(s): Steven Braun, Northeastern University Data Analytics and Visualization Specialist; Bahare Sanaie-Movahed, Northeastern University Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialist
In this workshop, participants will explore what it means for a map to be deigned well. In the process, we will use activities to understand map-making as a medium that requires intentionality and careful thoughtfulness, exploring the special design considerations that are particularly important when making maps. What makes a good map? The answer may not be so straightforward.
March 29 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
Speaker: Sandra González-Bailón, Affiliated Faculty at the Warren Center for Network and Data Sciences, Assistant Professor of Communication, Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn)
This talk will offer an account of the progress made in recent decades, and dive into the details of Sandra's own research, which aims to illuminate how networks facilitate large-scale coordination – and dynamics of change that lay beyond the control of any one individual involved.
March 31 10:30 am - 11:30 am EDT
Speaker: Felice Frankel, Science Photographer and Research Scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
This talk will include examples of Felice Frankel's own attempts in creating various representations; some more successful than others. She will discuss the iterative process of getting from "here" to "there,” making representations that are more than good enough.
April 7 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Speaker: Olaf Sporns, Distinguished Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University; Co-Director at IUNI
In this presentation, Professor Sporns will review current themes and future directions of network neuroscience, including comparative studies of brain networks across different animal species, investigation of prominent network attributes in human brains, and use of computational models to map information flow and communication dynamics.
