Programme

The SLS group meets every to every second week in term for approximately an hour (or as long as it takes us to finish our discussions and polish off the cake). 

IMPORTANT: During corona-lockdown we will meet in on this online meeting room.

 

Summer 2020:

We’re outside of our normal meeting period, so no activities until autumn. 

Remember to submit an abstract for PPDK!
