CSH Lunch

The CSH Lunch typically precedes the CSH Colloquium on Wednesdays. It occurs in G6 Room -108 from 12:15h - 13:00h. Formats for the CSH Lunch include discussion of frontier research and career issues, roundtable introductions of research expertise, journal club, etc.  The CSH Lunch has two purposes.  The first is to allow our CSH Colloquium and Seminar speakers a forum for discussing work other than what they will present in their talks.  The second is for our students and postdocs to practise giving short, 10-minute talks based on research they have been doing.  One may discuss research ideas that are not yet finalized or even fully formed, and gather feedback from our local community.  Note that Powerpoint/Keynote slides are banned from the CSH Lunch. The encouraged practice is to bring one plot printed on a single piece of paper (and multiple copies of this for everyone to share). Your challenge is to convince us why your scientific result is interesting without using presentation slides.  (To the students and postdocs: this is an incredibly useful career skill that is to your advantage to develop.). The result you will share should be something you have been thinking about day and night, so there is little to no preparation time needed.  Basically, share with us your mental universe and tell us why it is interesting to you.
