CERN Sydney

CERN-Sydney meets face-to-face (plus Zoom) for one day each month to discuss drafts of each other’s writing and recent publications. There’s also an emphasis on food, conviviality and long-walks. This CERN group has been going for almost fifteen years. What follows is a selection of published works that the group has been reading in recent years (though much of the time they are reading drafts of each other’s writing).
