CSTR Weekly Meeting - Talk Schedule

Time and Place

CSTR meetings will generally held on Monday at 12:00 in IF4.31/4.33 (Spring 2017), but may be prone to deviate this semester due to teaching and other clashes. Please check below for times and locations!


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. At the moment, all regular CSTR members have been scheduled (excluding students who have already completed their DDD). 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!
