CEE Research Speed Dating app identifies new synergies
The annual CEE Research Speed Dating event, held Feb. 7 this year, is designed to expedite the process of creating research “matches” among scientists and engineers from multiple disciplines by offering four-minute sound-bite talks followed by one minute of Q-and-A. This year two students — Christos Nicolaides and Jameson Toole working with professors Marta González and Pedro Reis — devised the Speed Dating Network App to give participants a way of keeping track of who they want to connect with and seeing how those people connect with others. The app builds a network map based on real-time input from attendees, providing a semi-permanent conference takeaway. Read a story. View a photo album on Facebook.
