About the series
Directors present an overall report of the Center's activities. Faculty present research proposals to members. They also give progress presentations for the research funded through the center. Students present posters describing the research. New proposals are voted on by the members. Visitors interested in membership are welcome if they are willing to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
All of the arrangements are ready for the upcoming members-only midyear workshop, the CHREC Midyear Workshop 2009 (CMW09), on June 2-3 in Roanoke, VA. The registration, hotel, and travel information is now posted on the CHREC Midyear Workshop 2009 Web Page for your convenience.
