In response to long standing demand, a wiki and forums for arranging Part III study groups has been set up on CamTools. The link is below:
It should be possible to arrange times to meet (with polls if needed), talk about the courses (with TeX support) and so on.
If you have feedback or comments, please tell us!
Congratulations to the incoming committee for the year 2012-2013!
President: Gunnar Peng
Secretary: Rachael Bonnebaigt
Treasurer: Tamara von Glehn
Part III Coordinator: Ha Thu Nguyen
Transferable Skills Officer: Harry Braviner

The Part III Seminar Series grant Part III students the opportunity to give a talk (perhaps their first ever) on some maths that they've learnt, in a friendly and informal setting. There are two series during the year: the Michaelmas one, where the talks are usually on material learnt that term, and the Lent one, where the talks are usually on the student's Part III essay. The students are organised into groups according to the subject matter of the talk, and the other members of the group provide an audience for the person giving a talk (and afterwards hopefully understand something they didn't before!). This is overseen by PhD students, who lead the groups, offering advice on the talk preparation, scheduling their group's talks, and finally chairing the talks themselves.
One PhD student each from DAMTP and DPMMS are needed as Part III Seminar Directors to organise everything. Several PhD students act as group leaders. As a PhD student, if you're interested in doing any of these jobs, contact the committee. We also have a collection of how to files.
