Group Meetings

Published by admin on Monday, March 1, 2010

The Gravity Group at UMississippi has a regular weekly scheduled meeting throughout the year to discuss current research progress, topics of interest and new papers. Typically, at each meeting, two members of the group, each make a short presentation, either their current area of research or a paper that has attracted their interest.

For the Summer 2022, the Group meets on Tuesdays between 9-10AM with a journal club or seminar and on Thursdays between 9-10AM with research updates, both a scheduled ca. half hour presentation and room for free-form updates. The schedule of speakers for this semester is:

The group also has a running series where an external speaker is invited to give seminar talk during one of the usual meetings on their area of research or any topic of interest. The seminar then replaces the usual format of the meetings on those days. The list of external speakers will be updated as time goes on.

The Gravity Seminar series will take place during the weekly journal club slot for Summer Semester 2022.
