 +====== LPD Seminars ======
 +
 +This is a joint seminar of the Distributed Programming Laboratory and the Programming Methods Laboratory. The idea is to present our current work to the members of the two groups. However researchers from the outside world are also encouraged to participate. The style is rather informal and all interested are welcome.
 +
 +If you would like to present your work at our seminar, please send us an [[pk@lpdmail.epfl.ch|e-mail]].
