The Michaelmas 2013 Part III seminars will be held on Wednesday 4th, Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December. Each talk lasts 45 minutes.

Tea and coffee will be served in the core during 15 minute breaks each morning at 10:30am and afternoon at 3:30pm, and everyone is invited to a **party in the Part III room** at 5:30pm on Friday.

**Abstracts for talks can be viewed on each group's individual page ** (click on the name of the group)**.**

Please note that there may be slight changes to schedules, so check before turning up!
