The LAVA group meets for lunch on Fridays (the day might change sometimes, please check the schedule!) at 12:00-13:00. In addition to bringing our own lunch (and occasionally a cake or waffles), one of us will contribute a short presentation of ongoing work, or discuss ideas for projects/experiments. The room where the meeting takes place will be listed here for each week.
