School Colloquium

Monday, 16:30

The general purpose of the School Colloquia is to provide accessible and engaging introductions to a broad range of topics of current research interest in any branch of Mathematics or its applications.

As the Maths Lecture Theatre is out of use in the Spring Semester, the Colloquium will be taking place elsewhere on campus. Please consult the list below a week or two ahead of the colloquium for the venue and exact time.  The colloquium will be followed by a reception. (Currently we are expecting the colloquium to be given in Lecture Theatre PP2 of the People's Palace, and the reception to be held in the Foyer of the same building.) 

The college web site provides detailed directions for reaching the Mile End campus.  The People's Palace is building number 16 on the campus map; it lies roughly half way between Stepney Green and Mile End stations.
