In view of the continuing spread of the COVID-19 virus, we now hold a series of weekly virtual seminar meetings on Thursdays at 15:30 (BST).
These were organised by the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences ICMS  in collaboration with INI.
Some of the talks are recorded. Further details can be found here.

Virtual Seminar Series’ ORGANISERS:

Thomas Bothner (King’s College London)
Adri Olde Daalhuis (University of Edinburgh)
Ana F. Loureiro (University of Kent)
Walter Van Assche (KU Leuven, Belgium)
Jani Virtanen (University of Reading)
