An important objective of ARC is to provide consulting and otherwise help on all matters algorithmic! To facilitate this, ARC hosts research lunches featuring guests from various branches of the Sciences and the Engineering on a regular basis. The guest lecturer gives a brief 15 minute presentation after which the discussion is typically interactive with an intent to model, analyze and help solve problems from a rigorous and algorithmic perspective.

Prospective guests are highly encouraged and welcomed to write to the ARC director for a visit.
