Please advise one of the PIs before arriving for the first time on campus in order to organize the logistics together.#
Lab rooms at Polytechnique#
As a NeuroPoly lab member, the majority of your time at Polytechnique will be spent in one of two main rooms, depending on the focus of your work:
L-5613: Primarily for those working on RF/hardware/shimming projects.
L-5626: Primarily for those working on image analysis/deep learning projects.
There are also separate rooms for servers (L-7944.A) and printers (L-5619). Some of these doors require codes to access, these can be found in the Internal Document.
Desk access is given on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once you find a seat that you like, please put your name somewhere (e.g. on a sheet of paper) so we know that a desk has been claimed.
If you work on a personal laptop and need desktop equipment (a monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc.) please contact your supervisor. If instead you need to be provided a workstation (e.g. iMac), please consult the List of Computing Resources document, then pick a workstation that is not being used by another lab member.
The list of free desks can be found here.
Affiliation with Mila#
For Julien’s students working on AI projects, you could request an affiliation at Mila. Advantages include: French course, access to Mila facility (open space, infrastructure), and for networking with AI students.
To request an affiliation, ask Julien to fill up this form.
Requirements for room access#
To be able to access the lab rooms, you will need a Polytechnique card and to activate it for the specific rooms you wish to access. To activate it, please follow the onboarding procedure.
In addition to the above requirement, please also complete the following steps specific to COVID-19:
Check-in with your supervisor if you have any plans to come on campus, as you will need to be authorized first.
Read over the NeuroPoly Lab Reopening guide to learn about the mandatory training procedures that are necessary for returning to the lab.
Check the pinned messages in the #covid-19 channel on NeuroPoly’s Slack for the most up-to-date info, as the situation is likely to change as the pandemic evolves.
WiFi Access: Eduroam#
As part of your PolyMTL CAS account (
@polymtl.ca), you are granted access to the ‘eduroam’ network across campuses internationally. Setting up a connection to this network requires additional steps beyond just logging in. For more information on how to log into eduroam, please visit the ‘Computer Setup - Eduroam’ page.
