Fall 2017 Student Seminar Series
The “Brown Bag” seminar series is a student-run weekly seminar for presenting research to your peers in a supportive and helpful environment. We’ve had practice QEs, first-runs of conference talks, half-baked proposal ideas, and trial-runs of workshops. You can even just present what you do so your peers can learn about what you’re learning about! There’s coffee, tea and snacks. Bring your own mug, bring lunch if ya want.
Talks will be every Tuesday at 12pm in Wickson 1017.

November 21st, 2017: Unclaimed!
So far nobody has signed up to talk on this day. If you want to give a talk, sign up! Otherwise we will probably just have a randomly-selected GGE student dance their PhD hopes and dreams in front of an empty room.
