Seminars 2018-19

Each year, the School of Computing and Mathematics hosts seminars from a variety of researchers working on topics aligned with our research interests. These speakers are often leading experts invited by school staff: in Computing we have enjoyed subjects as diverse as Social Learning, Reservoir Computing, Perceptual Learning and Software Engineering and Design. Maths seminars have spanned non-linear electromechanics, stability and waves in solids and fluids and plant root growth. We also invite doctoral students from the school and elsewhere to give talks as their research develops.
