I would highly encourage fellow graduate students and post-doctoral researchers to attend these events. This will be a great chance to network and interact with the speakers. Most of us have always wished to meet and greet speakers from the INDUSTRY considering future goals of some of us, this is an excellent opportunity.
Have a great weekend!
