This seminar meets on Thursday from 12:15 - 1:45 PM in Sustainable City Laboratory (ZS701) if there is no other time arrangement informed in advance.


The purpose of the seminar is to help create an air of professional seriousness through scholarly interaction in BRE. The seminar is held not only for enriching staff’s research experience by interacting with peers and exchanging ideas, but also providing vivid opportunities for research staff and students in particular to handle opinions from different angles for more rigorous discussions. It is envision that all participants can learn to get information from research and broaden research horizons in different fields.

The Format

The seminar runs through providing light lunch for the first 10-15 minutes, followed by the speaker’s presentation of around 1 hour and a 15-minutes Q&A session. The contents of presentation can be general research ideas, interesting research outcomes, conference or journal papers recently published or under preparation. There won’t be a fixed format for presentation and is flexible depending on the speaker’s own arrangement. A certificate will also be issued to the speaker for acknowledgement. All in all, we expect a causal seminar with vigorous and helpful discussions.


Please contact Dr. Hung-Lin Chi at or (852) 2766 5871 if you wish to give a presentation or suggest other speakers. We will acknowledge your contributions.
