Fourth Biannual Student Summer Retreat

SQuInT Student Retreat 2005

Start Date: Jul 07, 2005 - 12:00am
End Date: Jul 10, 2005 - 12:00am

Host: Hosted by University of Southern California, Coordinator: Prof. Todd Brun

Location: Los Angeles California

The Retreat is an educational activity, with pedagogical and overview lectures geared towards newcomers to the field. In addition, it is intended to provide an opportunity for new students in the field to become acquainted with their peers from other research groups and to establish grass roots connections between the increasing number of research groups active in this field -- hence the name: Summer School and Retreat.
