TMS will once again present its extremely popular Tutorial Luncheon Lecture Series at the meeting. This series offers an informal seminar atmosphere for expert presentations on subjects designed either as theoretical review or as informal discussion of experimental techniques and leading edge scientific advancements.
The tutorial lecture format includes an optional "brown bag" lunch for $15, which should be purchased in advance using the on-line meeting registration form. Lunch begins at 12:00 noon, followed by a 40 minute tutorial lecture beginning at 12:20 p.m. There will be no charge for those attending the lecture who do not wish to purchase the lunch.
