Please visit – http://timingforum.org/timing-meetings/ for an updated list of timing meetings.

  1. TRF’s RESOURCES AND YOUR CONTRIBUTION

TRF aims to host timing related resources, so that TRF‘s website will be the one stop for everything related to timing. Currently, the TRF website has these resources: all members’ publications, timing related special issues, and books on timing, a list of meetings focused on timing, a list of timing related societies/groups, as well as code and mentoring resources.

 

We ask all of you to contribute to these resources. Please send us (by emailing us at trf@timingforum.org) any omissions that we might have or any new information that should be added.

 

TRF is based on the idea of sharing information freely between its’ members so as to advance timing research and group collaborations. Thus, we encourage all of you to share with us any of the above resources that you might have and/or suggest new resources that we should add and circulate within the community.

  1. FEEDBACK

We thank all of you for supporting this community and hope that you will continue to do so in the future. As we continuously emphasize, TRF is meant to be open to all timing researchers with the aim of sharing

ideas and advancing the current state of the art. Thus, we are open to any suggestions or ideas that will help TRF grow and advance. We have already established many ways (website, mailing list, resources etc.) to

discuss the current state and the future of TRF and these tools will become more active in the coming months. We are looking forward to all of your feedback!

With best wishes,
