2012 Calendar

(June 4 - August 9, 2012)

Items prefaced by the acronym "BLISS" (for instance, dinners every Tuesday, one Thursday talk, and occasional Monday events, etc.) are required for all BLISS Fellows. Other events are optional but likely to be of interest. See PRISE calendar for more social activities.
