cua seminars

The CUA seminar is the central weekly event for the CUA and an excellent opportunity to interact with the CUA community. It takes place on Tuesdays starting at 4:00 p.m. alternating between Harvard (Jefferson Lab 250) and MIT (Building 26, room 26-214), unless otherwise noted. The seminar begins with a short 10 minute talk by one of the local graduate students or postdocs. After some refreshments the main talk will begin at 4:30 p.m.
