 +===Description / Motivation:​===
 +  * GSPS meets weekly; each hour features a talk by one grad student and one postdoc on their own research.
 +  * Talks should be ~20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions.
 +  * Speakers can present work that is fully complete all the way through work in just the beginning stages.
 +  * Please emphasize background material.
 +  * (Practice qual talks / job talks are fine to present.)
 +  * No faculty allowed.
 +  * GSPS is a good place to...
 +    * promote community between students and postdocs
 +    * practice speaking and discussing your research
 +    * feel comfortable asking lots of questions
 +    * learn about topics outside your own research
 +  * If you would like feedback on your presentation,​ the organizers would be happy to take notes and discuss it with you afterwards (and/or ask other audience members to do so).
 +Organizers: ​ Linda Strubbe & Eric Huff  (please contact us if you have questions)
