Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminars - 2016/17 academic year

This page lists seminars for a previous academic year. Click here to see seminars for the current year.

Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminars are held on Wednesdays at 3pm during the academic year. For the Spring 2017 semester they will take place in room 1.18 in the UCD Agricultural and Food Science Centre. Special seminars may also be arranged on different days and outside of the academic term.

For comments and speaker suggestions please contact the seminar coordinator Dr Barry Wardell. The ACM/Wave Group seminars are organised by Prof Frédéric Dias and the ACM/Climate Science seminars are organised by Dr Xuefeng Cui.
