2.50pm Posters/Social

Thanks to and the Population Biology group at Davis for sponsorship.

Registration is free but required, so we can make sure we order enough food and get a big enough room. Registration is now closed (as of November 22nd). Registration list here: google doc.

The Coop Lab: Simon Aeschbacher, Chenling Antelope, Jeremy Berg, Gideon Bradburd, Vince Buffalo, Graham Coop, Ivan Juric, Kristin Lee, Alisa Sedghifar
P.S. the twitter hashtag will be #BAPGXI.

For those bringing posters, there will be wallspace provided on the first two floors of Storer Hall, as well as bluetack and tape for hanging your posters. Posters should be no wider than 48″ (~1.2m), and those bringing posters should try to have their posters set up by 10am (so they can be viewed from the first coffee break). Please contact Gideon Bradburd ( with all poster-related questions.
