Organization

Every Monday morning we hold a round table. A round table begins with a business meeting where we discuss matters of general interest and solve problems. During a round-table, every member in the lab briefly reviews events and results since the last round table and figure goals for the next interval. Round tables allow us to keep current between major research presentations, and ensure communication and exchange of help and ideas among lab members. Each lab member has a regular weekly meeting time (Petit-seminar) with Kazu, as well as frequent informal contact. Friday afternoon we hold a research presentation by a member of the lab or a visitor as appropriate.
