CPI is initiating a new event series: CPI RoundTable Discussions. These are intended to bring CPI researchers interested in selected multidisciplinary topics to the same table in the hope of kickstarting a potential collaboration. Our intent is to organize these events in collaboration with other university institutes and centres and/or focusing on specific CPI research themes.
Please Note: These discussions are for CPI members and participants, and will be invite-only.
If you are a CPI member or a member of the University of Waterloo community and want to join or learn more about CPI Roundtables, visit our internal site.
