BAPC - Calendar for the Week of Sept 22

Apologies all – I sent this out this morning, only I sent it to BAPC Events and not announce.  Apparently I did the same thing last week.  Thankfully someone today finally asked me when I was going to start sending things out.  We are starting a process to try and automate all of this, so it’s very easy to do from a website.  More details later.


Apologies for today and last week.








Sept 22 – Sept 26, 2014


The Boston Area Physics Calendar is published weekly during the academic year by the Department of Physics at MIT.  Entries should be sent no later than 2:00 pm on the Wednesday proceeding the week of the actual event.
