IDLE is on holiday.  Please stay tuned.

About

IDLE is an interdisciplinary brown bag discussion, bringing together people and ideas from as many different disciplines as possible. We take turns presenting our latest and sometimes most radical ideas, making our work accessible to people in any discipline. There are sometimes technical details, but the gist of each presentation is and should be understandable by everyone. This requires a core group of open, engaged, and irreverent people (and I mean irreverent in the nicest of ways). If our colleagues find something interesting, then we should presume that it is indeed interesting and probably of value across most disciplines.
