The Forum is a central event of SoReMo.
It is a multidisciplinary seminar for students, faculty, and external advisors to interact, share problems, solutions, strategies, technologies, issues, challenges, and general views of how to help society using modeling, design, computation, and data.
During Fall 2021, we meet on the second and fourth Friday each month, 11:15-12:30.
The location is in PS-111 (Pritzker Science building on campus).
The auditorium is hybrid-enabled; we will do our best to enable remote participation for those who cannot attend in person. Zoom links will be sent the morning of the event to our mailing list SoReMofirstname.lastname@example.org.
What to expect in our events
The FORUM will consist of different types of events:
Fireside Chats - a get-to-know-us panel discussion where interesting problems are brought up, and we learn about the many disciplines (academic) and areas (in industry&government) playing a critical role in how SoReMo will have an impact. These events are simply labeled as "SoReMo Forum" in the calendar.
Forum-EDU focuses on current Fellows projects. This is to be a lively discussion and debate, lead by the Fellows, and critically assessed by the audience of peers, faculty, advisors.
Forum-DIV will tackle challenges related to community engagement, diversity and inclusion. Some of these events will be co-hosted or coordinated with Illinois Techs's Community Engaged Research Coalition (CERC).
Student engagement events
During our inaugural semester, Spring 2021, we co-hosted several events to help students learn how to engage with the SoReMo initiative. It is our hope you have learned that these activities are designed to empower you, the student! Connect with us!
SoReMo is for students!
