This is the group schedule page. Below is the calendar of group meetings. We currently meet on Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30 p.m. in Bloomberg 397.
Meetings begin with a quick scrum: 30 seconds to 1 minute per-person (this is a hard time cap at 1 minute, no more allowed) description of what they did last week and what they’re working on. No interruptions, no tangents, and no questions are allowed during this time.
REMEMBER: you must either get a speaker, or prepare a 20 minute talk with slides on either your work or someone else’s.
See the previous speakers page for previous speaker bios + archives of the previous schedules for prior semesters.
