Collaboration Meeting

Our supersonic project collaboration meeting will take place Monday, March 27th - Wednesday, March 29th.

Venue: UCLA's Physics and Astronomy building. The talks will take place in the 3rd-floor conference room, known as PAB 3-703. The breakfast and coffee breaks will take place on the 3rd-floor patio (or in the Astro-reading room if weather conditions are less than favorable).
