  1. Hi – is there a flyer available for this? I’m afraid we’re rather old school and post paper flyers on a bulletin board in our lab. :-) Thanks!

  2. There will be flyers eventually! We will make sure you get some.

  3. Do we need to register for this lecture or just arrive enthusiastically at the door on the 24th of October? Really looking forward to this.

  4. You can just enthusiastically show up at the door.
