2017 Summer Nanoseminar Schedule

Posted by on Thursday, May 11, 2017 in Events, News, .

The VINSE summer nanoseminar series provides an opportunity for graduate students or post-docs to share their current research with the larger VINSE community to foster discussion and collaboration.  Each seminar will consist of 2 talks of 15-20 minutes each with 10-15 minutes of questions.  The goal of these talks is to discuss and challenge the work being presented in order to promote a healthy debate.

Seminars will be held weekly in 5326 Stevenson Center from 12:00-1:00 on Fridays.
