Lunch Meeting

Each week during term time - irregularly also outside terms - we have a group meeting on Tuesdays from 12:15 to 13:45 in the meeting room (AND 2.23) at Andreastrasse 15. During this meeting we eat our self-provided lunch and discuss the latest news relevant for our lab and our research. This is followed by a short presentation by one of the group members on a topic of his/her choice. Such a presentation can be the discussion of a interesting paper or the demonstration of own research results. Sometimes we also invite guest speakers.

Everybody who is interested in our phonetics group is welcome!

If you wish to receive regular updates about the group meeting and our activities please sign up to our newsletter (write a mail with the subject "add me to the Phonetics Group list" to Sandra Schwab)
