JClub Winter 2022-2023: Announcement

In the winter semester 2022/23 (from October 2022 to February 2023), we are happy to once again host a digital journal club to read and discuss a selection of methods-focused scientific articles.

We will meet every third Wednesday of the month (exceptions: no meeting in December, and in January, we meet during the fourth week), at 4:00 PM in Berlin, Germany, on Zoom. JClub meetings are typically 90 minutes long. Since the meeting format is online, participants from other locations and time zones are welcome to sign up!

If you are interested in participating, please sign up by September 23, 2022 using the following link: https://forms.gle/ifUN4iQBF577nsJL9. Please note that space is limited, and we may need to put you on a waiting list, depending on interest. Charité Health Data Sciences PhD Program students will be prioritized. If you have any questions, please contact us at bemcolloquium@charite.de
