Seminars & Conferences
Faculty and graduate students participate in various seminars, colloquia, and conferences in the greater Boston Area.
Weekly seminars held in our Department include the Analysis-Geometry Seminar and the Geometry-Algebra-Singularities-Combinatorics Seminar. In addition, the Brandeis-Harvard-MIT-Northeastern Colloquium rotates between the four campuses with approximately one talk per month in our Department.
We organize several annual conferences. The Maurice Auslander Distinguished Lectures and International Conference is held every April in Woods Hole on Cape Cod; this event is co-sponsored by Bernice Auslander and our Department, and attracts participants from many institutions in the Boston Area and around the world. Our Department also sponsors the annual Graduate Alumni Conference which is held on our campus in March. Several Ph.D. alumni are invited to participate as speakers and panelists; some of our current faculty also give talks on their research. The event is popular with our graduate alumni, current graduate students, and prospective students who want to learn more about our Department and graduate program.
Finally, every Summer 1 minimester (i.e. May and June) the Department organizes the Tapas Seminar. This seminar aims to introduce first and second-year grad students to the various research areas that members of the faculty and more advanced grad students are working in, so as to help beginning students find an area and/or an advisor with whom they might like to work. Talks by both faculty and grad students are welcome.
