The Summer Pizza Lunches have been moved to their own page.

Faculty, research staff and students: If you have a visitor coming for a given week, please contact the person in charge for that week (do not modify this page yourself). Also be sure to add the visitor's name to the visitor page. The goal is to allow all visitors the chance to lead a brief discussion of their research.

Speakers: We aim for informal discussions about 10-20 minutes in length. Powerpoint is discouraged, but permitted for particularly relevant images.
