Dear grad students and postdocs,

The TRIUMF Junior Research Symposium will be held this *Thursday*, *June 
11* beginning at *9:00 AM*.

We have a great lineup of speakers reflecting a wide range of the 
physics being done at TRIUMF. Many of you have told us that you would 
like to see more internal talks, and this symposium provides a great 
opportunity to learn about the work being done by your colleagues. And 
if science and camaraderie isn't enough to motivate you, we've got free 
coffee and cookies before each session.

The schedule is given below and in the attached flyer.

See you there (bright and early),
Your SGSPD comittee
