About the series


  • One slot per week will be available for internal research seminars. Rooms will be pre-booked for these slots. These will be reserved for internal speakers, though a multi-speaker internal seminar may include guest speakers.
  • Each week will have one seminar slot at 10.30am on Tuesdays to Thursdays.

Alternate timings

  • Where possible, seminars should be booked within the scheduled times above.
  • Any alternate timings should replace one of the scheduled times
  • All seminars must start and finish within “core hours” (10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday).

Seminars with guest speakers

  • From time-to-time, we will invite guest speakers to present to the department. These need to be booked separately by the group who is arranging the seminar. The cost associated will need to be picked up by that group.
  • Seminars with guest speakers need to take place during core hours.
