Proper use of articles. Traditional Grammar tells us that the English articles are the indefinite article `a/an’ and the definite article `the’. It tells us very little else other than that we usually but not always omit `the’ when we use a proper noun, and that `an’ is placed before a common noun or adjective that begins with a vowel or a mute `h', and `a' before a common noun or adjective that begins with a consonant.

Each seminar is held in conjunction with a related GRC and begins the weekend immediately prior to the GRC. Graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education come together in a highly-stimulating and non-intimidating environment to discuss their current research and build informal networks with their peers that may lead to a lifetime of collaboration and scientific achievement.
