Meeting notices!

The best way I can think of to increase your knowledge and help further your research is to attend some seminars & meetings.  Every time I attend one I learn more and leave with new friends.  So we are including the following page to get the word out on as many of them as we can. Hopefully you will find one that will be close enough for you to attend.  If you know of one please let us know in order for us to get the word out!
