PDL Talk Series

INFO & Agenda


We are pleased to welcome PDL Consortium Members to our PDL Talk Series!
This will be an ongoing series of talks by PDL students, faculty and member company folks. Talks will occur every one to two weeks, with one or two talks per event on Thursdays starting at 12 noon ET. (So, to be safe, Greg is blocking off Thursdays, noon-2pm ET on his calendar :))

Registration is required to attend (you only need to register once to receive all future talk announcements and details). A new zoom room will be used for each talk date, and zoom links will be emailed to registered people a couple days in advance.
