PhLiPonLine will continue through the 2020-21 academic year. Our regular meeting time during the fall will be Tuesdays 2-4 eastern, except for one talk on Friday, November 6. The format will be as usual: one hour presentation, a short break, then moderated questions for one hour. We will send out a zoom link ahead of each talk, and when participants approve, we will record the talks and the Q&A sessions and provide password-protected access to the recordings here.

If you are interested in giving a presentation in the winter, please send an abstract to
