About TWed:

TWed Talks are informal overview talks and tutorials on topics of interest to the Tetherless World community. TWed gives members and friends of the lab the chance to share tools and expertise. TWed Talks are not intended to be lectures; they are expected to be highly interactive and fun! TWed leaders are strongly encouraged to include live "hack" activities in their session plans.

Schedule of TWed Topics and Leaders (Fall 2015):

Possible Fall 2015 TWed Topics (still to be scheduled):

  • Talk: Research Data Management for Scientific Communities (DCO Data Science team)
  • Talk: Topics of interest by Tetherless World students
  • Talk: Topics of interest by Professors Jim Hendler, Deborah McGuinness, Peter Fox, and Heng Ji
