Guy F. Atkinson Distinguished Lecture Series
We are please to announce the lineup for our 2020-21 academic year Distinguished Lecture Series! Lectures are held on most Thursdays at 4:00 pm. They are free and open to the public.
The University of Utah is currently operating in a reduced capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, lectures will be done via Zoom: https://utah.zoom.us/j/96851056253, password: FALLDLS.
As much as possible, we will also do a Facebook Live for each lecture.
Meet and Greet: Students, staff, and faculty are invited to join in a meet and greet with each DLS speaker. This is a great opportunity to informally chat with the guest speaker about their career and research. Meet and greets will be done via Zoom: https://utah.zoom.us/j/96851056253, password: FALLDLS. Due to varying speaker schedules, meet and greets will be held based on the speaker's availability; the day and time will be shared on FB, via emails, and in the table below.
