We are pleased to announce the inaugural meeting of the CCD Journal Club, which will be held on Thursday, October 15, 12:00-2:00pm in room 407B in the Department of Biomedical Informatics in the Baum Boulevard Building.  Food and drinks (pizza and pop/soda) will be provided.

The CCD Journal Club will be a forum in which to discuss recent papers on causal modeling and discovery that are of broad interest to the members of the CCD, while also providing important presentation and professional development opportunities for our trainees.  The format will consist of an extended presentation (~1 hour) by a CCD trainee, who will cover an appropriate, current paper in the field with the assistance of their advisor, who will provide additional commentary/perspectives on the work.  The following hour will be an open discussion on the presented paper.  Moving forward, we plan to have ~2 presentations per semester.

If you would like to volunteer for a future session, please contact Dr. Joseph Ayoob (jayoob@pitt.edu).  We hope to see you at our first event!
