Recurrence Quantification Analysis Workshop, May 1-3 2019

Location: McGill University 

Date: May 1-3, 9am-5pm, 2019  

CREATE network mentors Dr. Alexandra Paxton (Univ of Connecticut) and Dr. Mike Riley from the Cognition, Action and Perception team (University of Cincinnati) will lead this 3-day workshop on Recurrence Quantification Analysis. Lunch will be provided.

Recurrence Quantification is a method of nonlinear data analysis for the investigation of dynamical systems that quantifies the number and duration of recurrences of a dynamical system in its phase space trajectory. RQA techniques can be applied within a system (auto-RQA) and across systems (cross-RQA; joint RQA). Trainees will learn specific applications and how to apply them to their own datasets. Computer workstations will be provided, and trainees can download the software to their laptops.

This introductory workshop counts as a technical workshop for CREATE-funded trainees in complex dynamics. Registration is first-come, first-served for all CREATE trainees; priority will be given to graduate and postdoc trainees. There are only 20 spots, so please register soon by replying to dynamics (dot) create at gmail (dot) com


Entrepreneurship Workshop June 26, 2019

Entrepreneurship for Researchers
June 26, 9:30AM-3:00PM
A832 Elizabeth Wirth Music Building
527 Sherbrooke St. West, McGill University

What is the path from scientific findings to commercialization? What
resources are available for researchers on this path? Where does
business funding come from? How is IP ownership handled? What does a
researcher need to know before becoming an entrepreneur?

Researchers from the Montreal academic community who have current
entrepreneurial experience, with representatives of incubator and
accelerator hubs in the Montreal entrepreneurial ecosystem, will address 
these questions in a workshop sponsored by CIRMMT and CRBLM.

9:30-11:30 - Researchers-Entrepreneurs panel:
Etienne De Villers-Sidani - Innodem Neurosciences
Matthew Boerum - Audible Reality
Sahil Gupta - Soundskrit

11:30 - 13:00 -  Networking Lunch (lunch will be provided, registration 
is required)

13:00 - 15:00 Incubators/accelerators panel:
Jane Somerville - District3
Omar Zahr - Tandemlaunch
McGill Dobson centre for entrepreneurship
La Piscine
