The official order list is kept here. If you are presenting, please try to send an announcement to the cns group ( by the Friday before the meeting. Also remember to update this web page, which is located on condor in /home/httpd/www/cns/index.html. If you are getting food, plan for 12 people and try to have the food there before noon.

The CNS seminars are open to the public and are held on Wed at 12:00pm in Mellon Institute Rm 115, Carnegie Mellon University. If you would like to be on our cns-vision mailing list, please contact Dr. Tai Sing Lee at or Dr. Mike Lewickiat
