1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club
November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Co-sponsored by: Greg Hislop
We’ll be going back to the GERMAN CLUB 416 Vulture Street, East Brisbane, 4169
As this will be international IEEE day, the Queensland IEEE Section has kindly offered some modest catering for the event. With this in mind please register so that I have an idea of numbers.
For our Nineth 1TJPC for 2017 (I didn’t know I could count that high)! Prof Vaughan Clarkson will be the reader leader. The paper he has selected for us this month is
H. M. Finn, “A new approach to sequential detection in phased-array radar systems”, in Proc. Winter Convention on Military Electronics, vol. II, pp. 4–12, December, 1963
This is a classic paper which introduced the concept of alert-confirm detection for phased-array radar and well worth hearing about especially from such a capable presenter. If you have difficulty getting a copy of the paper plase let Vaughan or me (email@example.com) know.
About the 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club: We meet usually on the 1st Tuesday of the month as the name suggests (inspired by the ABC TV series “1st Tuesday Book Club”). Each month, from amongst ourselves we identify a Reader Leader. He or she picks a highly cited, ‘top ten’ or major-prize-winning article, preferably in an SPS or ComSoc journal. Through the month, each of us reads the article. At the next meeting, the Reader Leader leads a discussion of that article, starting with his/her own appraisal. In so doing, we all broaden our understanding of the field and further develop a sense of community.
1st Rule of 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club: tell everyone about 1st Tuesday Journal-Paper Club.
