The seminar meets fortnightly, and welcomes presentation of experimental research, broadly defined, at all stages – from design through to finished papers. Speakers usually present at a location other than their home institution, and presentations by research students are most welcome.
The seminar coordinator for Semester 2, 2012 is Stephen Cheung (University of Sydney).
