The Journal Club provides an informal environment to practice presenting scientific material, a platform for discussion, as well as exposure to a broader background in physics. Everyone is welcome to attend, but if you are interested in giving a talk you must subscribe first (by emailing as2457 @

Talks should be a maximum of 50 minutes with at least 10 minutes of discussion about a classic paper (generally pioneering or groundbreaking, see below for a list of suggestions) of the speaker's choice. The majority of the time should be spent introducing the paper in a pedagogical fashion. Blackboard presentations are preferred but the subject matter is generally unrestricted (of relevance to TCM).

The next speaker and their chosen paper will be announced at the end of the meeting, via the mailing list and will be shown to the right. Subscribers will be listed to the right in the order they will present. Each session is chaired by the previous speaker, the role of whom is to introduce the speaker and lead the discussion. Members are generally expected to have read the paper and the chair is expected to read in enough detail to lead the discussion.
