Meet and Greet Event

You're Invited!

Dates: March 31st and April 1st, 2016
Time: 9:00am-3:30pm
Location: Student Union Ballroom 331

The CT Institute for the Brain & Cognitive Sciences invites interested members of the UConn community to an inaugural meeting at which faculty affiliated with the Institute will give brief 10-min overviews of the issues they work on, the challenges they face, and their vision for how these challenges might be met. The schedule for the presentations can be found below. Each talk is 10-minutes long (except those marked with an asterisk) with a 2 minute change-over time. Additionally, posters will be on display from individual labs detailing similar overviews of challenges and vision. Because space is limited, we shall ask you to register in advance by Wednesday, March 30th by 3pm. Coffee, lunch, and other refreshments are provided.
