Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminars - 2018/19 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 Mondays at 1pm during the academic year. They take place in room SCN 1.25 in the O'Brien Centre for Science (North). 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 jointly organised by Prof Frédéric Dias and the ACM/Climate Science seminars are jointly organised by Dr Xuefeng Cui.
