Nuclear Lunch -- Fall 2016

The Ohio University lunchtime nuclear seminar meets weekly, 11:50-12:45 Wednesdays in the Roger Finlay Conference Room, to discuss interesting papers in nuclear and particle physics. All graduate students and postdocs interested in nuclear physics are welcome to attend. We like to start the talks at 11:50 sharp, so please feel free to come ~11:30 for eating and socializing.

Remember that your presentation should be less than 12 slides long. The purpose of this rule is not to overly constrain you -- it's to give you a better idea of what we expect. We do not expect your talk to be the last word on the subject or a polished seminar. Your presentation is meant to raise some of the key issues, and, ideally, to initiate discussion. If you do not understand something in the paper, say so, or write down your question. We will collect the written questions, and discuss the issues raised as a group. Feel free to contact the course organizers if you have any organizational questions.

The lead coordinators for Nuclear lunch this semester are faculty members Carl Brune and Daniel Phillips. Other coordinators are Charlotte Elster, Justin Frantz, Ken Hicks, Paul King, Zach Meisel, Prakash, and Julie Roche.
