Meetings

The LUG meets every week during the Spring and Fall semesters. Each week, we alternate between our Technical Sessions and Social Dinners.

Technical sessions are generally held in the same room over the course of the semester. Any room changes will be sent out on the mailing list. Venues for social dinners are decided upon the week prior to the meeting, and then sent out on the mailing list.

Topics we're considering for the future are on the Meeting Ideas page.

If you're interested in speaking at a LUG meeting, read our Guest Speaker FAQ.
