Meeting Documents

NARS meetings are frequently technical presentations on topics of interest to the membership. In most cases, it is helpful to have these notes and documents available after the meeting when we attempt to put into practice what we were shown in the meeting. To that end, we are making some of the material presented in the meeting available here for reference. Reference material may also be available on the NARS SIGS.
