CAMPS Research Labs provide a forum for staff and graduate students from all disciplines involved to come together in order to present work-in-progress and debate research issues. CAMPS Labs to date have taken a two-hour format, typically initiated with a presentation of specific research themes, questions and challenges, leading into informal and often very wide-ranging discussions.

All Labs take place at 12 pm and are followed by a light lunch and continued conversation.

For detail of older events, see the Research Labs Archive page.
