The Fernandez-Nieves Group meetings take place on Wednesdays at 7:05pm in room N110 at the School of Physics, Joseph H. Howey building in GaTech. There are several types of meetings, regular group meetings, journal clubs and eventually, special group meetings from visitors. If you wish to attend any of these meetings, to give a talk or to present a paper at the journal club feel free to come or please contact afragkopoulos [at] gmail.com
