Summer research seminars

Cal Poly Pomona Summer Research Seminars
Seminars are open to any students, faculty, and staff doing research in summer or simply interested in research going on on campus.  Seminars will be held most Wednesdays at noon, starting June 26 and going through late August.  Lunch is provided at the seminars thanks to generous support from the College of Science, the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and various campus grant programs.  To be added to the mailing list, either go to this site and sign up, or send an email to me at arsmall@csupomona.edu.

The organizing committee for the summer of 2013 is:
Dr. Alex Small (Department of Physics and Astronomy)
Dr. Winny Dong (Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering)
Dr. Arlo Caine (Department of Mathematics and Statistics)
Dr. Andrew Voss (Department of Biological Sciences)
Dr. Yvette Nout (Department of Animal Science)
Dr. Hyun Gu Kang (Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion)
