SIAM CSE17 BE: Guided Affinity Groups

Guided Affinity Groups
Guides lead small affinity groups in activities at the conference with the goal of improving the learning for the group members. An example of a guided activity might include: meeting with the group prior to a mini-symposium to discuss what to expect, attending the mini-symposium with the group, then meeting with the group afterwards to demystify, further discuss, and answer any questions. Another example might include attending a plenary session together, then assigning “homework” such as a writing a short paper, presenting a synopsis, or writing a blog; and then meet with the group to go over the homework. Guided events involve activities directly related to CSE17 conference sessions and should aim to improve learning.

Here is a list of the planned Guided Affinity Groups (others may be added):
