Giving a Talk

The graduate seminar is held once a month, typically on the first Thursday of every month. The general format is as follows: pizza at 4:30, the talk at 5:00, and we go to the bar afterwards.

Please email Nikita Nikolaev <nikolaev at math dot toronto dot edu> or Matt Sourisseau <matt.sourisseau at mail dot utoronto dot ca> telling them 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.
