Analysis Seminar Programme

Autumn Term 2011

Seminars are held on Wednesdays at 4pm in R17/18 in the Watson Building unless otherwise stated. We meet for tea before the seminar in the common room (Room 221 in the Watson Building) and usually go for drink and a meal with the speaker after the seminar. Everyone is welcome. If you have any queries, please contact Dr. Neal Bez.
