In order to foster more regular interaction between scientists at the MIT LIGO Lab and the MIT Kavli Institute, we are starting a new weekly afternoon tea-time series from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Wednesdays, to be hosted at the LIGO Lab (NW22) and MKI (37) on alternating weeks. The General Relativity Informal Tea-Time Series will be a forum for regular discussion between the gravitational-wave experiment, theory, and astrophysics communities at MIT. Every week, we aim to have an informal discussion of recent research topics. Occasionally, visitors will be invited to give a presentation.
This is the current schedule, for Fall 2013.
We plan on meeting every Wednesday, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
