In addition to our research level seminars, geometry is well represented in the departmental colloquium. The aim of the colloquium is to bring together the whole department, from masters students to professors, in every discipline, to hear survey-style talks from leaders in their field.

There is a dedicated webpage for the colloquium, where you can find the speakers and dates.
