Seminars in the IIES Seminar Series

The IIES Seminars are at 13.00 if nothing else is stated. For Fall 2021 the seminars are hybrid, meaning the speaker is presenting in the IIES Seminar room where you can join in person, but one can also follow via Zoom. We ask that everyone follow the FHM guidelines if joining in person.

Seminars run for 75 min including questions, plus an additional 15 min for further discussion.
