Information for Speakers

The audience of the DAGGER seminar consists of postgraduate students in dynamics, geometry, and related areas. Talks should be roughly 50 minutes long and should be aimed at an audience of non-specialists. You can talk about anything you like: your own research, something you have read about, find interesting, or a subject you would like to share with other people. To get an idea, you could look at our website (there are titles and abstracts available from previous talks).

The seminar takes place on Mondays at 2pm UK time.

If you require any support as a result of a disability or have any accessibility requirements, please let us know.

You have the option to give talks in-person or online.

In person speakers:

If you choose to give a talk in person you will be required to follow any current university and government guidelines for in-person events. We would also encourage you to take a lateral flow test before arrival. In-person talks will take place in a lecture theatre set up for hybrid talks and will be streamed to audience members who choose not to attend in person. Social distancing measures will be observed.

If you choose to speak in person we will be able to reimburse your travel costs up to around 100 GBP. If you further require accommodation, we may be able provide additional funding upon request. Please let us know if we can assist you in finding a suitable place to stay.

Online speakers:

The seminar takes place online, via Microsoft Teams. Depending on circumstances at the time, we may have a hybrid audience where some people gather to watch the talk in a lecture theatre and some join virtually on their own devices.

As Teams can be a little unreliable in the browser, we recommend downloading the desktop app. If necessary we can perform a technology check a few days before the talk to ensure there are no glitches. We will also be available on the day of the talk for last minute questions and checks.

We usually hang out a little after the talk for virtual tea and biscuits.
