Let this thread be for any upcoming events of interest.

...When I'm not modeling electromagnetics at Northeastern or over-analyzing demographics here, I'm helping organize an ongoing event called Nerd Nite. This is basically a typical night out at the neighborhood bar (Midway Cafe in JP, Orange Line to Green Street; not sure what the under 21 situation is) except with PowerPoint presentations of peoples' research or other nerdy interests. Or you could think of it as a research seminar with beer. The crowd is awesome- heckling (in good humor), cheering wildly when equations are shown, etc.

Anyways, the next one is going to be on July 1. I'm going to be delivering a scorcher of a presentation called Explorations in the use of graph theory for the optimization of transit systems. Yinz should come check it out. Here's a preview:



We might be looking for an additional presentation- anyone interested? It could be as simple as a photograph slide show, but the more arcane and esoteric, the better. Since I'm talking about transit, it'd be nice to have someone else talking about transit, architecture, etc. I hear some of the people on this forum are interested in these topics.

...fyi there's also Nerd Nite NYC for those currently located over there.

Jim Aloisi and Ari Ofsevit of TransitMatters discuss the state of transportation in Massachusetts.

Join TransitMatters at the Boston University Kilachand Honors College for a discussion with Jim Aloisi and Ari Ofsevit.
Aloisi is a Boston-based strategic consultant and former Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation in the Administration of Governor Deval Patrick, where he led a landmark transportation restructuring initiative and made a strong effort to secure new revenue to fund our transportation needs.

Corley is an urban strategist and political economist. She frequently collaborates with TransitMatters on Regional Rail, where transit and development opportunities intersect. She brings expertise in economic development, business, labor markets, architecture, law, and public policy to TransitMatters and the board. This collaboration complements her role as MassINC's Transit-Oriented Development Fellow, where she convenes political and community leaders to advocate for inclusive TOD in Massachusetts’ Gateway Cities.

Ofsevit is TM's Technical Advocacy Director. He has worked extensively with advocacy organizations interested in how small changes and data analysis can bring change and equity to transportation and development projects.
Are you wondering about the what, why, and how of Massachusetts transportation? This will be a great event get your questions answered and network with fellow transportation enthusiasts and advocates.
Admission is free and open to the public. Donations will be gratefully accepted.
