The 4th Annual C-SPARC Workshop will be held on Monday December 7 and Tuesday December 8 at the University of Toronto in the Physics Department. All students, postdocs and RAs funded by C-SPARC are expected to give talks. Other students and postdocs not formally affiliated with the C-SPARC project, but who are working on related topics, are welcome to attend the workshop and to submit a talk. Investigators may also give talks if they feel so inclined. There is no need to submit abstracts but those intending to give talks must submit a title by October 16 in order to organize the schedule. Talks will be scheduled for 15-20 minutes.
In addition, there will three invited speakers: Vitali Fioletev (EC), Karl Hoppel (NLR) and Jean-Francois Lamarque (NCAR).
An RA meeting will follow the Workshop and take place on Wednesday, December 8.
