Manchester OPAL Christmas meeting

OPAL and Friends

Christmas Meeting 2000

Physics Department Conference Room

The general theme for each talk is 'What I did last year, and what I plan to do next year.' This is largely for the general education and information of the rest of us, but it's proved to be a good opportunity to reflect and review and plan individually as well as collectively.

Times are indicative: speakers are encouraged to go over or under their time depending on whether they have interesting things to say.
