CSTR Weekly Meeting - Talk Schedule
Time and Place
CSTR meetings will generally held on Monday at 16:10. As of 16 March 2020, we will be running CSTR talks virtually via Zoom (due to the COVID-19). We will send out the link to join the virtual meeting on the CSTR talks mailing list.
Meetings consist of a 30-45 minute talk followed by questions and discussion.
We've roughly scheduled CSTR members to give one research talks during the year. We expect these annual reports to be interspersed with practice talks, pre-viva talks, talks from visitors etc. Contact Catherine Lai to select specific dates or if you would like to enter the rota.
Do you have a great idea that you want to develop? You can always schedule a work-in-progress talk earlier than you appear on the list!
