Slow Pitch Seminar (2009 Archive)

Tuesdays from 05:00pm to 06:00pm in MB106

The Seminar is a class-length (i.e. 50-minute) lecture aimed at graduate students. It is semi-formal, usually with pizza beforehand. Ideally, it describes current research being done by professors in the department at a 'softball' level suitable for graduate students taking or having recently passed the qualifying exams, and possibly seeking an interesting research niche. More broadly, it is commensurate with the Seminar's objectives to provide graduate students an overview of a niche in which they have not specialized, often by providing a sketch of one of the professors occasionally attend as well.)
