GISS Lunch Seminar Series

The Lunch Seminar Series was originally designed as an informal gathering bringing GISS researchers together (with pizza) to learn more about what other members of the institute are doing. However, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and work-from-home rules and the adoption of remote/virtual seminars, many of our presenters have been researchers from other institution.

We generally meet on Wednesday about twice per month during the academic year, but there might be a seminar or two during summer.

There is normally one talk of 30-45 minutes in length, plus ample time for questions and announcements of general interest.

Please contact Maegan A. DeLessio for further information about the seminars, to volunteer to give a seminar, or to request connection details about how to virtually attend a seminar.

Following is the schedule for early 2023 seminars. Presentation abstracts, slidedecks, and videos are posted as they become available. Slidedecks and videos marked "req" are only available upon request.
