Welcome to LBNL ATLAS Journal club for Graduate students (and other students working with the ATLAS group). 
We meet weekly on Wednesdays at 15:00-16:00 at Berkeley Lab.
Check the table below for the room, but usually in 50B-4205 or 50B-2222 which is in the Building 50 complex near blackberry gate (bus stop 65).

Each week one of our members will chair the discussion, which effectively mean they'll have a specific set of points they wish to go over.
However, everyone is expected to have read the paper and contribute to the discussion! No slides allowed, but supplementary material/plots is fine! (smile)
