Seminars

On the fourth Wednesday of the month, the CGS hosts an open, hour-long research seminar where two junior researchers (grad students and post-docs) present on their recent results. There is also time for Q&A. The seminars are attended locally and remotely by CGS members and represent a valuable opportunity to communicate progress in real time and serve also to promote collaborative interactions. ×
