George Bernard Shaw - "Forgive this long letter; I don't have time to write a short one"

Below you will find a schedule of speakers for a discussion forum for environmental microbiologists at UNSW. The purpose of the discussion forum is to facilitate interaction between environmental microbiologists at UNSW. The discussion forum will take place every Wednesday in the Samuels tea room on the first floor of the Samuels Building from 10 - 11 am starting on the 16th of February, 2011. The format for the forum consists of a 15 minute presentation followed by 15 minutes questions followed by a half hour morning tea. If you have an interest in environmental microbiology then you are welcome to attend (undergrads, postgrads and public included). If you are a third year PhD student or have a PhD and would be interested in contributing with 15 minutes of fame please contact Mike Manefield.
