Work-in-Progress

2022-2023 Schedule – Mondays 9am-10am
A weekly work-in-progress provides trainees with the opportunity to present their research results, develop communication skills, and receive feedback from colleagues. Our WIP presentation schedule is changing starting January 16th, 2023. In order to give more students an opportunity to present during the year, there will be two presentations on each designated Monday. Each presentation will last 20 minutes maximum, followed by a 10-minute question period.
