Expertise I Slides April 2010 1

  1. 1. Building Career Blocks Yesim Anter Microphysics Laborat ory
  2. 2. Area of Expertise: I. Event Management The following slides are prepared to address the extent of my event planning, organizational skills
  3. 3. Extensive Experience on Business Event Planning • International Workshops • MPL1 Program Meetings • Departmental Physics Seminars • Campus-Wide, UIC Brown Bag seminars 1 Microphysics Laboratory at the Department of Physics
  4. 4. International Workshops • US Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of II-VI Materials: The purpose of this workshop is to bring together the industrial, governmental, and academic communities that work with II-VI materials. It is a 3-day workshop, organized every year in the September – November time frame. • International Symposium on the Optical Materials and Devices: The goal of this symposium is to offer a venue for discussions and the exchange of ideas in the areas of solar photovoltaics, infrared photovoltaics and light emitting diodes (LEDs). It is a 2-day symposium, organized every other year, typically in summer months.
  5. 5. International Workshops I. US Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of II-VI Materials: I was involved in the organization of this workshop as: – On site coordinator: 2003 – 2007, 2009 • Work with the presenters (+100) to ensure smooth transition between presenters and sessions. • Assist organizing committee members in chairing workshop sessions – Manuscript coordinator: 2002 - 2010 • Work with guest editors in peer review process • Work with the journal editors to ensure timely publication of the proceedings • Ensure the committee is updated on the status of manuscripts on a regular basis.
  6. 6. International Workshops I. US Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of II-VI Materials - Cont’ed: – Pre-arrival coordinator (In cooperation with Palisades Convention Management): 2003 – 2007, 2009 • When applicable, visit workshop location to ensure the workshop arrangements are made appropriately. – Social event coordinator: 2003 – 2007, 2009 • Plan and organize social event/dinner arrangements for the meeting attendants at the request of sponsoring committee members.
  7. 7. International Workshops II. International Symposium on the Optical Materials and Devices: Have taken an active role from beginning to the end in the planning and organizing of this symposium in 2002, 2008, 2010 particularly when it is Chicago-based. The current plan for the symposium is to organize it in Chicago every even years. My efforts are focused on: – In advance planning on various aspects of the symposium organization: location, catering, entertainment and A/V needs – Marketing and publicizing the event – Maintaining a budget
  8. 8. International Workshops II. International Symposium on the Optical Materials and Devices – Cont’ed: – Coordination with the presenters, chairs and sponsors – On site event management: Event registration, transition between presenters and sessions, coordination with hotel or on-site representatives – After symposium follow up with the presenters for their future participation – Participate in the speaker selection process
  9. 9. Other Events and Meetings • MPL program kick off & closing meetings Since its inception in mid 80s, Microphysics Laboratory has obtained more than $ 18 Million in external funding to support research programs in the area of Infrared (IR) and Night Vision Detector Technology. Since 2002, I have been partially or fully involved with the planning and organization of various meetings - internal and external- that these programs have called for.
  10. 10. Other Events and Meetings I participate in many departmental and campus wide initiatives such as: • Departmental seminars, colloquiums: I join Physics Department in the planning and organization of various departmental seminars, committee meetings (i.e. GAANN1 program) and colloquiums where invited speakers invited to give a review talk in their area of expertise. • UIC Brown-Bag seminars: One of my responsibilities as a CCSW – AP2 co-chair is to plan, organize, host or assist with the organizing of events (brown bag seminars) and initiatives for subcommittee. 1Graduate Assistance in the Area of National Need (GAANN) in Applied Physics program sponsored by US Dept of Education 2Chancellor’s Committee on the Status of Women (CCSW) Academic Professionals (AP) subcommittee at UIC
  11. 11. How I started at UIC? • Joined Microphysics Laboratory (MPL) as a Graduate Student in 2001 while studying for my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) Degree in Marketing. • After graduation, in 2003, I accepted an offer from Physics Department to serve as the “Visiting Project Coordinator” of MPL, reporting directly to the director of the laboratory, Prof. Siva Sivananthan. One year later, the position became permanent.
