Queen Mary Internal Postgraduate Seminar

Programme for 2017-18

QuIPS, the postgraduate seminar, allows PhD students to present their research (or any other interesting maths) to each other in a friendly space. Talks are usually on Tuesdays from 12-1 and a free lunch is provided afterwards. Roughly once a month we have a 'pizza QuIPS' in the evening instead. Everyone is welcome: QuIPS talks are designed to be accessible to all maths PhD students!
