2021 Nanoseminar Schedule

Posted by on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 in 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.

Due to the current campus restrictions we will be holding these sessions via Zoom, Fridays at 12:00-1:00 pm. Pre-registration is required. To register: <–CLICK HERE –>.

Questions will be asked at the end of each zoom seminar session, everyone that answers questions correctly will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift card. Winners will be announced on Facebook. Follow us on Facebook!
