The seminar will run 9–11am on Tuesdays from 6th October 2015. There will be 10 sessions, and all will take place in the video conferencing SMSTC facilities (e.g. JCMB 5323 in Edinburgh). All students, postdocs and faculty throughout Scotland are invited to attend. Talks will be given by participants, and will be assigned in advance.

The syllabus is FD Algebra Working Seminar Syllabus.

All participants should register via the SMSTC web site www.smstc.ac.uk. This is not one of the standard SMSTC courses, but some departments may allow students to take this seminar for credit, and students must seek approval for that from their own institution. Assessment will include giving a short talk as part of the seminar, and the production of some of the course notes (in LaTeX). If your institution agrees, please email both Michael Wemyss (m.wemyss@ed.ac.uk) and Martin Kalck (m.kalck@ed.ac.uk) *as soon as possible* so we can plan the schedule of talks.
