Saturday Morning Group Meetings

All meetings are scheduled for Saturday mornings from 10:00 am until noon. Unless noted otherwise, all meetings are held in Annex 655.

These informal research meetings offer an important opportunity to develop oral and technical presentation skills. Use these occasions to convince your audience of the importance of your presentation. Be it a topic seminar, a research report or current literature, organize your material well so as to make your point in the time you have. For topic seminars, these are excellent opportunities to develop slide shows that engage the audience. Frontiers of Chemistry seminars serve as preparation for proposals and job interviews or for postdoctoral studies.

Besides extending the frontiers of research, the effective communication of scientific ideas and results is the most important mission of the scientist. Our group meetings are the best place to refine these skills.
