A past colloquim: people listening to a lecture at ImperialThe Departmental Colloquia series began in 2010. The purpose of the series is two fold: to hear from some of the world's leading mathematicians and statisticians, and to provide a forum for the department (faculty, research fellows, and postgraduate students) to meet.

There is usually a reception following the talk, with an opportunity to meet the speaker (pre-COVID19 arrangements).

Upcoming Colloquia:

 

The next Departmental Colloquium is scheduled for 13 October 2021.
The speaker is Prof Günter Ziegler.
