Undergraduate Symposium Sunday at San Diego

posted Mar 1, 2016, 6:15 AM by Ed Sherer   [ updated Mar 1, 2016, 6:17 AM ]
Please come out and support your fellow COMP members at the first undergraduate session in COMP.  We are following the lead of PHYS in setting up an undergraduate only session where members will give a short oral presentation covering a poster they will later give during the COMP poster session.  The session was made possible through an ACS IPG award and will fund sessions this Spring, and Spring '17.  Please contact Maria Nagan or Ed Sherer with any questions.
