21st Annual Summer Interdisciplinary Conference


ASIC Speaking Schedule 4-8 PM (each day except 5-8 June 17). The daily ‘Chair’ will choose the order of speakers. The talks each day are selected to maximize dissimilarity (easy to do this year). Speakers should prepare talks suitable for a general audience of maximum 30 minutes duration – the remaining time will be for interruptions and discussion. In case there are delays due to the group climbing day, the talks on June 17, Friday will start at 5, and only three are scheduled (the food and drink at the reception will nonetheless be available starting at 4).
