    Is there some place that I can find a very detailed description of the Dissertation house? I was so impressed with the seminar, that I shared the information with my counterparts, professors and school administration.

    While I did a great job explaining what took place, however, I would like to provide these folks with greater detail with respect to the processes, procedures, and the like.

    Can someone direct me to the right place please?
