GISS Lunch Seminar Series

The GISS Lunch Seminar Series was originally created as an informal gathering bringing GISS researchers together (with pizza) to learn more about what other members of the institute are doing. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, increased work-from-home schedules, and the adoption of hybrid and virtual seminars, many of our presenters have been researchers from other institutions who have presented their work via remote connection.

Lunch seminars are held early Wednesday afternoons about twice per month during the academic year. There may be a few seminars during summer.

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

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

Following are the seminars scheduled so far for the second half of 2023. (The schedule for early 2023 is available elsewhere.) Presentation abstracts, slidedecks, and videos are posted as they become available. Slidedecks and videos marked "req" are only available upon request.
