Bi-monthly meeting of TRÊS' staff members (Mondays, 14:00, 5172.0580)
Contact the student/postdoc representative Raph for information and for getting issues on the staff agenda

TRÊS Seminars

TRÊS organizes a seminar afternoon hosting 4-5 talks from the different PI groups within TRÊS, on the third Wednesday of each month at 13:30 in room 5172.0571. These seminars are the forum for presenting the work of both group members and guest speakers. Group members are expected to attend the seminars and participate in the discussion, and to present their own plans and results at least twice a year. Talks will be scheduled ahead in a Google spreadsheet accessible to all group members. These time slots can be swapped when necessary (e.g. if somebody wants to have an earlier slot for a practice talk), but whenever a speaker on the list is not available, s/he needs to find a substitute. For questions, contact Joke.
