HopHacks is the biannual hackathon hosted at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. For 36 hours students work in teams of up to four people, to bring a software or hardware idea to life. Last fall, we gathered more than 360 of the most creative and talented students from JHU, MIT, UMD, CMU, Rutgers, NYU, and many more. This fall, we expect to host even more students from institutions across the country. This February 16-18, we welcome you to join the HopHacks community.Click here for more information!
Noah Cowan will deliver a lecture as part of the Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series. Cowan is a professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Neuroscience in The Matrix
Understanding how the nervous system encodes and processes sensory information, transforms it into meaningful intermediate representations in the brain, and computes motor output involves decoding a complex closed-loop control system. Professor Cowan will present research devoted to developing and applying ideas in engineering to decode closed-loop neuromechanical control in animals, including humans.
The Don P. Giddens Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series began in 1993 as a way to honor newly promoted full professors. Professor Giddens, originator of the series, served as the fifth dean of Engineering at Johns Hopkins.
The Whiting School of Engineering and the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences will hold their fourth Annual Homewood Schools’ Doctoral Hooding Ceremony to honor our students who either have or will be completing their doctoral degrees (summer and fall 2017 and spring 2018). The ceremony will take place from 3 to 6 pm. on Tuesday, May 22, in the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center, with a reception to follow onsite.
All eligible students who wish to participate in the hooding ceremony—and faculty advisers who plan to hood their students—must register to attend the ceremony.
