The CSD Program organizes a weekly seminar series, which is arranged around lectures by invited outside speakers, and is a venue for CSD student and postdoc presentations.
The Program also hosts an annual research retreat at a mountain location each Fall where faculty, postdocs and students present their work in both talk and poster formats.
The CSD program has 2 ongoing journal clubs. One is a student run club, attended by CSD students only. The other is open to all (faculty, students, postdocs, staff). Both journal clubs meet twice a month, to discuss cutting edge papers with broad appeal to our group.
These events are excellent opportunities for scientific interactions that allow for exchange of ideas and often lead to further collaborations.
