    Each week we plan to cover a topic lead by a chair in an informal manner. We have a list of topics we think are important to cover, but we're fairly certain we won't have thought of everything. So if anybody has any suggestions then please send them our way.

    Schedule

    Sessions are held every Thursday at 10am in the Lovell Room
