PIMS - AMI Seminar Series

The AMI maintains an active research seminar series, which typically runs on Tuesdays at 3:30 pm in CAB 657. The talks cover a wide variety of research areas related to Applied Mathemtics, and are aimed at both faculty members and graduate students.

To suggest a speaker or for questions please contact the seminar coordinator at henry.vanroessel@ualberta.ca.

Refreshments are served one half hour prior to the talk in the faculty lounge.
