CTRC McGill
McGill Seminar on Logic, Category Theory, and Computation

Upcoming seminars and related activities

Next talk


Schedule of talks for 2015

Notice
The first seminar talk started with an organizational meeting concerning a proposed mathematical logic seminar starting this fall, during which we will try to see how to proceed during the semester. This was followed by a talk by Marcin Sabok.
As a result of this meeting, the Category seminar merged with logic and computing, as indicated by the new title. We shall continue with the usual Tuesday time, but with an additional time on Fridays, initially on an occasional basis.
The first Friday talk was in November - from then on, the day of the week will be part of the listings (we may drop that if people have no trouble reading a calendar!).
Friday talks are held in BH1214, Tuesday talks continue in BH920.
The Friday location will be indicated in the listings; the Tuesday location remains the default.
