DOR Research Roundup and Roundtable

The always popular "Research Round-up"  with the Division of Research will give us an overview (including preliminary results, when available) of all current projects using MANA Stats data. The Roundtable will also introduce each member of the DOR Coordinating Council, and as a panel they will take questions from attendees. It will be a highly-interactive session that not only gives us a sneak peek at as-yet-unpublished research findings, but also enhances a broader understanding about the people behind the MANA Stats project.
