ATI Seminar Series is now on summer hiatus

The ATI Seminar Series is on hiatus for the summer. Join us in September, when the fall talks begin.

ATI is looking for speakers for the ATI Seminar this fall!

We have a number of openings this fall and winter, and are now booking speakers. Presenting at the ATI Seminar Series is an excellent opportunity to promote your research.

Trainees and graduate students are also welcome to present their research, either in a full 45 minute presentation or a shorter talk.

If you would like to present at the ATI Seminar Series this fall and winter, please contact
