The Mathematica site license at IIT is a great resource that begs to be fully tapped, and the IIT Mathematica User Group (IITMUG) is a step in that direction. We hope the spirit of IITMUG will be similar to the legendary home-brew computer club, with a lot of informal code-sharing, networking, cooperative learning, amazing demonstrations, and fun. Both novices and experienced Mathematica folks, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to attend.
A preliminary (zeroth) meeting of IITMUG was held at the Wolfram Technology Conference in Champaign several weeks ago. The math club students who were present expressed a strong interest and enthusiasm, and we also hope for much broader participation of other people and backgrounds on campus.
The first IITMUG meeting at IIT will be held from 12:45 – 1:45 pm on Thursday, November 15 in E1 106.
The purpose of this particular meeting will be to discuss IITMUG activities, special topics of interest, future meeting formats, locations, and time(s). And probably a little show and tell of interesting Mathematica code.
If you plan to attend this meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “RSVP IITMUG” so we can make sure the room capacity is sufficient.
