Throughout the semester, the PGSA run a fortnightly series of alternating Grue Bags and Grue Shops. Here you will find a brief introduction to each kind of meeting, a recent history of talks, and upcoming presentations.
The Grue Bag Presentations are hour-long talks given by a UConn graduate student to the other UConn graduate students about once every four weeks.
The Grue Shops are workshops occurring about once every four weeks. These workshops focus on a paper by a UConn student, and are attended by UConn students. We read the paper prior to the workshop. During the workshop, after a brief summary of the paper by the presenter, we spend most of the hour giving them comments.
