Giving a Talk

The graduate seminar is held approximately once a month, typically on the first Thursday. Pizza is served for ten minutes before the talk, and the seminar attendees will go to the bar afterwards.

If you'd like to give a talk, please email Jerrod Smith (jerrod.smith [at] with your talk title and what day(s) you would prefer. We will then ask you for a short (1-2 paragraph) abstract the week before the talk so that it can go in the official seminar announcements and posters.
