Seoul Chapter

What was the last paper within the realm of computing you read? What did it inspire you to build or tinker with? Come share the ideas in an awesome academic/research publication with fellow engineers, programmers, and paper-readers. Lead a session and show off code that you wrote that implements these ideas or just give us the lowdown about the paper. Otherwise, just come, listen, learn, and discuss.

We'll be using papers-we-love's curated repository. Please contribute by adding PR's for papers, code, and/or links to other repositories.

PWL Seoul strictly adheres to the Code of Conduct set forth by all PWL charters.

Escape Fallout - Breath Clean w/ Tech

Date/Time: 2019-02-27 07:00pm Location: 501 - Gangnam-gu

Ionising Radiation Detection Hardware Show and Tell

This is a showcase of some of the challenges with slightly more unusual hardware an that an Arduino or a similar development board could be connected to.

Along with some long-winded history on why this little project began, the following will be covered:
Why is ionizing radiation something meaningful to measure?
Why is displaying of ionizing rad. a user experience headache.
"Would you like to come up and see my etchings?"
(Er, I mean, would you like to come up and see my low-cost PCB manufacturing process?)
An IOT "Hello World", using any ESP8266 board and Blynk.
Q and A for low-cost embedded devices.

[UX_Papers we love] V. Bondarchuk "Do You Really Only Need to Test with 5 Users"

Date/Time: 2016-05-26 08:30pm Location: HiveArena - Seoul

<a></a> Our  third meetup for UX papers, this time Victoria Bondarchuk will present: 

Refining the test phase of usability evaluation: how many subjects is enough?Virzi, R. A. (1992)  

Description:  Want to get a reaction? Just mention  testing with five users to anyone in software development. Few topics elicit more emotion than  small sample sizes in user testing. Robert Virzi's paper codified this number into UX history. It was one of a few papers which showed how to use the Binomial (or Poisson) distributions to arrive at the now famous formula

[Papers we love] Seoul Chapter, "Designing for usability.."

Date/Time: 2016-02-18 08:30pm Location: HiveArena - Seoul

Seoul Tech Society is crazy about Papers We Love movement! 

This is an experimental meetup for everyone who is interested in Computer Science and User Experience Research and would like to study the most influential academic papers in the field together. 

This will be an introduction meeting, why don't we go easy and review well-known paper in the field: 

Designing for usability: key principles and what designers think. Gould, J. D. and Lewis, C. (1985)

Go to any UX conference and you'll hear the same points as those raised in this pioneering paper: early and continual focus on users; empirical measurement, iterative design. View Paper[pdf]

Date/Time: 2014-06-28 02:00pm Location: Coffee Zaroo - 보정

What is LaunchLab?

As part of the Launch - Hack - Tell cycle of innovation, SeoulTech is proud to announce the Launch Lab series of meetups.  This is a new type of event where researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators discuss and propose (any) project, and solicit ideas and help from other SeoulTech members.


Launch Lab helps members take one giant leap beyond networking. These events allow members  to get involved with the creation of new ideas or startups, while forging friendships and business partnerships to last a lifetime. 


The event features a group of speakers that give a 10 to 15 minute presentation of their idea. The audience then discusses the idea. Audience members can also choose to join or further contribute to the project.

Open discussion sessions will also be available, so if anyone gets in…
