Faculty Area Research Seminar



FARS is meeting on Wednesday at 12:15 in room 383N. It is not a weekly seminar. We try out best to make it a biweekly seminar although the schedules of the speakers may vary. We will update this site when the speakers confirm their talks and send us their abstracts.
