The seminars are informal talks, from colleagues, collaborators or invited researchers from around the UK and the rest of the world. Each talk typically lasts 1 hour. If the talk sounds interesting please come along.

Seminars are held on Wednesdays at 3.00pm, in Lecture Theatre A of the Department of Physics and Astronomy (unless otherwise stated).

Seminars are organised by Andrew BlainStuart Muldrew (Autumn-Spring), Giovanni Dipierro (Summer) and Cassandra Hall (Summer)
