Statistics, Probability, Analysis and Applied Mathematics (SPAAM)

SPAAM Seminar Series 2023/24

The Statistics, Probability, Analysis and Applied Mathematics (SPAAM) seminar series will take place on Thursdays between 3-4pm in room B3.02 and virtually on the SPAAM Microsoft Teams ChannelLink opens in a new window during term time. It will host a variety of talks from PhD students involved in applied mathematics research at Warwick and invited guests from other institutions (see below for the schedule and talk abstracts).

The seminars will usually host two speakers (unless otherwise stated) with each talk taking around 15-20 minutes with 5-10 minutes of questions afterwards. Speakers and committee members will hang around for some time after the talks for social tea/coffee and further questions.
