Upcoming JBCA and Schuster Colloquia

JBCA Colloquia begin at 3 pm every Wednesday in the Lovell Room (3.225) in the Alan Turing Building, unless otherwise stated. Tea, coffee and biscuits are served from 2:45 pm. The post-colloquium follows immediately after at 4:00 pm in the tea room.

Schuster Colloquia normally start at 2:30 pm and take place in the Rutherford Lecture Theatre in the Schuster Building.

Extra seminars, which can be organised by anyone in the group separately from the colloquium series, are also included on this page for convenience.
