CSNJC runs once per week. The paper to be discussed is announced here as well as on the bioeng-neuro mailing list, which also posts other events affecting neurotechnology researchers in or associated with the Department of Bioengineering. If you have any CSNJC-related questions, please email Yann Sweeney.

Time and location (unless otherwise stated):
Tueday 10:00-11:00, Bessemer B402 (aka meeting room 1)
