SMC Reading Group / Seminar Series

This page details events at the SMC Reading Group currently scheduled from Wednesdays at noon.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, there are no current plans to hold face-to-face meetings in term 3. If there's enthusiasm for arranging virtual meetings then we could try to do that; let me know if you would be keen.

Similarly, if you wish to be added to the email list, or suggest any possible topics/papers for future meetings then please email a dot m dot johansen at warwick dot ac dot uk.
