Posted On September 29, 2020

October 30, 2020

This will be held online and split over multiple dates. The dates are October 30, November 13, and November 20, 2020.

This year's RMI Faculty Research Workshop will be held online. We plan to split the workshop over multiple days in order to keep the time commitment per day to two hours. The exact dates will be determined by the number of presentations. Faculty members should see additional questions about presenting when registering below.

This workshop features research talks by Department Faculty so that we can all learn more about the disciplinary research happening within the department.

RMI TT faculty, NTT faculty, and Ph.D. students are all strongly encouraged to attend; Affiliates and staff are also welcome to attend.
