Wednesday Research Meeting

LAS has established a forum called the Wednesday Research Meeting (WRM). Once a week, the LAS comes together to hear from one of the LAS collaborators or potential collaborators. At these sessions, the speaker goes into detail about the work they are or could do for LAS. These sessions allow our collaborators to keep abreast of new developments in research areas tangential to their own.

We invite you to join us in these WRMs via Webex. You can view the calendar of events below to see upcoming speakers and topics. If you would like more information, please contact LAS Director of Programs, Matt Schmidt at mcschmid@ncsu.edu.
