VINSE Summer NanoSeminar
2014 VINSE Summer NanoSeminar
Organized by: J. Scott Niezgoda
WHAT IS VINSE SUMMER “NANOSEMINAR”?
A seminar series in VINSE, 9 amazingly interesting seminars have been scheduled for this summer. During each seminar, two students/post-docs from different research groups will talk about their projects dealing with nanofabrication and science/technology as related to it. The focus of the seminar is to present potentially high impact research that is currently in progress/unfinished. We expect the seminars to promote lively discussions, interdisciplinary collaborations between multiple groups, and exchange of technical expertise. And, most importantly, there will be FREE FOOD.
