The geometry seminar is held every Tuesday, 3:304:30pm in the main seminar room at the Bayes Centre (5th floor), but check the schedule for exceptions. The seminar is organised by all faculty working in geometry, and currently coordinated by Sjoerd Beentjes. See the Seminars page for instructions on how to subscribe to the geometrytopology mailing list or, even better, the joint maxiedge mailing list.
The seminar is named after William Edge (19041997), who is known for example for his work on finite geometry, and worked at the University of Edinburgh for over 40 years (19321975). Related seminars are Topology, MAXIMALS, EMPG, GLEN, COW.
