There are 4 seminars scheduled during each of the fall and winter terms, 2 with guest speakers, 1 at which our faculty members present, and 1 at which members of our current grad cohort present. All graduate students are expected to attend. Seminar structure is typically organizied such that the first session of each term consists of short talks from faculty members within McMaster's Kinesiology community, and the last session of each term consists of short talks given by graduate students within our program. Attendance at and involvement in the departmental seminar series are necessary components of the graduate program, and are required for those who intend to apply for departmental travel awards. [In addition to seminar attendance, those applying for departmental travel awards must be first author on a paper, provide proof of paper's acceptance, copy of paper's abstract, and original receipts for expenses incurred at the conference in question in order to be considered.]
Seminars start at 11:30am in IWC E201 unless otherwise noted. For the 2012-13 academic year, Dr. Martin GIBALA is coordinating the series.
