The symplectic geometry seminars are held Mondays 2:10--3:00 PM in BA 6183, unless otherwise indicated.Symplectic Lunches:We go to lunch at Sylvester's Cafe at 16 Bancroft Avenue on Mondays right before the seminars. We meet there at 12:30PM. Please join us.Informal Seminar:The seminar is often followed, at 3pm in BA 6180, by a more informal discussion.
