Updated 11/22/05 NESS/CNSE SEMINAR SERIES PROCEDURE
 

Summary: Updated 11/22/05
NESS/CNSE SEMINAR SERIES PROCEDURE
Who Does What
NESS Seminar Coordinator A CNSE grad student who solicits faculty throughout the year to visit
Caltech and speak at the CNSE seminar or finds people who are already visiting and asks them to
give a presentation. The Seminar Coordinator interacts with the NESS presidents to publicize the
talk and provides support to the student host, attending dinners etc.
Student Host A student who has invited a specific speaker and is interested in working with that
person during their stay. The student host coordinates Sunday and Monday night dinners, Monday
Lunch, and the visitor's Monday schedule of student and faculty meetings. The student host gets
the abstract from the speaker and passes on to CNSE Coordinator. S/he drops off the Monday
schedule at the Atheneum so that the visitor knows what is happening on Monday. A student
typically hosts only once a year.
CNSE programs Coordinator Does all of the administrative and logistics for the visitor including:
- Reserves one room for two nights at the Atheneum
- Makes Monday lunch reservations for Atheneum (student host has to tell coordinator how many
people)
- Puts together a `welcome packet' with information on CNSE, Caltech, Pasadena, and Monday
schedule (provided by student host) and reimbursement information
- Reserves BBB24, checking with other seminar coordinators to make sure there are no conflicts
