Schedule of meetings (pdf)

SMALL GROUP MEETINGS are informal gatherings to discuss research results, problems and ideas. Be prepared: know what you wish to discuss and have the appropriate spectra, etc., available at the meeting. Be succinct: conciseness is always appreciated.

LITERATURE TALKS should use 3-4 papers from a single author or on a single topic, taken from good journals over the past 2 years. A brief handout for all group members (currently 15) should be prepared in advance; this should contain a list of the chosen papers, a 1 page summary of the important points of the chosen papers, a xerox of the abstract of each full paper, and a xerox of each short communication. Bring a complete copy of each of the full papers to the meeting.

INDIVIDUAL MEETINGS will be for candid evaluation of progress and goals. At the time of the meeting, please have a typed, one-page, three-holed summary. Two copies are needed: one for you and one for me. My copy is filed for future reference at the next individual meeting. This summary should include:

  1. your accomplishments since the last individual meeting;
  2. a separate paragraph of your goals for the next 2 months; and
  3. an attached copy of critical spectra.

RESEARCH TALKS should be a 40 minutes long, semi-formal PowerPoint presentation, with a brief handout of important data, spectra, and conclusions. The day after your research presentation, please post your presentation on the group server and give me a copy of the file as a CD-ROM, after any corrections have been made.

MANUSCRIPT PRIORITIZING MEETINGS are a general meeting where plans are made for the next semester's paper writing. Papers in preparation are placed in the following four categories:

  1. final draft (i.e., Ken's working on it)
  2. rough draft (Ken's seen it, made suggestions student's reworking it)
  3. very rough draft (student's draft and Ken hasn't seen it yet)
  4. not-started-yet-but-the-data-is-there (and Ken wants it written soon).
