The aim of this journal club is to foster discussion and exchange around scientific topics that can but are not necessarily directly related to the research done in the lab. Personal interest of the presenter should be the primary criteria for topic selection, which can also include discussion around science and society. Examples of past topics are given in the previous Journal Club (Spring 2017).
The Journal Club is every other Wednesday, from 14-14h50, in the Vulcano room. The schedule is indicated below. If it is your turn, please indicate the paper you are presenting and update the calendar accordingly. It can be any paper of scientific interest. Alternatively, you can also give tutorials on any scientific topic that may be of interest to other members of the group, organize a discussion on a scientific topic or invite an external speaker.
