The main activity of the research network will be a weekly interactive online seminar. For 2016-2017, they will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:00pm Eastern time. Members are emailed links for joining these seminars. The seminars are delivered using Cisco's WebEx platform, which allows participants to interact using audio and video, if they wish, and the presenter to share their desktop.
If you missed our ealier talks you can stream and/or download them by clicking on the links below.

Here are some basic instructions for connecting to our seminar.
You should receive an email titled “Invitation to WebEx meeting…”. In this email click on the link ‘Join’.
This directs you to the WebEx page for the seminar. Under “Don’t have an account?”, fill in “Your Display Name” and your “Email Address”, then click on “Join as Guest”.
Now the “Cisco WebEx Meetings” window should open. A small ‘Audi Conference’ window may open on its own. If not click on the large “Connect to Audio” button on the left or the small ‘Audio’ button on the right. Now click on “Call Using Computer” to use your computer’s speakers and microphone. (If your computer does not have audio capabilities, you can call in using a phone.)
If you see video on the top right, you can double click on it to enter ‘Full-Screen View’.
On either the bottom right of the ‘full-screen view’ or to the right of your name in the right panel, you can enable/disable your video and enable/disable your audio. To reduce background noise, please stay muted unless you are speaking. Also, to improve the quality of the talk, disable your video during the talk unless you are asking a question.
Some ad-blockers may prevent the ‘Audio Conference’ pop-up from opening.
WebEx should/may also work with tablets and smart phones and linux.
If you fail with one browser/device, try another.
If the WebEx program gets stuck on launching the meeting, shut down and restart your device.
