 October meeting

We’re starting the autumn with three excellent presentations. We hope to see you at our October meeting, on Wednesday October the 7th, from 16:00 to 18:00 in the Jacques-Genest auditorium at IRCM.

Our keynote speaker will be Dr Savard, who will be presenting his research on human-computing games, illustrating how “computer games are not just fun, they also provide us amazing tools to harness the computational power of crowds on the web.”

Since he wasn’t able to present in September, Emmanuel Noutahi, phD candidate in Dr El-Mabrouk’s laboratory at the Université de Montréal, will be presenting at this meeting the ETE toolkit.

Assya Trofimov, MSc student in Dr Lemieux’s laboratory at IRIC, will be presenting the R library Shiny, a web application framework for R.Agenda
