Friday Research Workshops

Each Friday afternoon during the school year, the IDSc Department and the MISRC host Friday Research Workshops. These are discussion seminars for PhD students, university faculty and interested Corporate Partners that focus on new research and research-related topics. The presenter typically provides a working paper two weeks in advance. We post the paper online so that it is available for attendees to read during the week of the workshop. The workshops usually begin with presentations of their work by the speaker, followed by a lively discussion. Doctoral students are asked to prepare a three questions in advance. Professor Gordon Davis coordinated the Friday Research Workshops for many years, prior to his retirement. Professor Fred Riggins is the current Friday Research Workshop Coordinator. If you would like to visit to present your research, please contact Fred at friggins@csom.umn.edu.
