The Michaelmas 2012 Part III seminars will be held on Wednesday 28th, Thursday 29th and Friday 30th November. Each talk lasts 45 minutes.
Tea and coffee will be served in the core during 15 minute breaks each morning and afternoon, 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).
