Probability seminars

Our seminars are usually held on Mondays at 1.15pm. In normal times they are in room 4W 1.7, but in 2020-21 they will be held via Zoom.

Seminars 2020-21

Please email Marcel Ortgiese or Cécile Mailler if you would like to join us and they will send you a Zoom invitation. You may also be interested in the One World Probability Seminar.
