Twelve UCLA students participating in JRI's Summer Research Exchange at Peking University (PKU) arrived in Beijing over the weekend. For ten weeks students, who range from third year undergraduates to PhD candidates, will perform research in labs with PKU faculty advisors and student mentors. Monday morning they had an orientation to PKU and their labs, and later enjoyed a Welcome Dinner with JRI staff, faculty and co-directors Jason Cong of the Computer Science Department at UCLA, and Xiaoming Li of the Computer Science Departerment at PKU. Cindy Fan, Vice-Provost for International Studies at UCLA, was also in attendance
Chinese classes begin Wednesday and continue each week at beginner and advanced levels. JRI offers three tours of Beijing throughout the summer, with plenty of weekends free for independent travel. See below for the 2012 summer calendar and this years' participants.
Thank you to JRI Coordiantor Cecca Yang at PKU for the arrangements!
