Seminars in the IIES Seminar Series

The IIES Seminars are at 13.00 if nothing else is stated.

For Spring 2022 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 90 min including questions.
