ASNC Research Seminar

The ASNC Research Seminar is a forum for post-doctoral researchers working in ASNC-related topics and senior members of the ASNC department to present research papers. The seminar provides an opportunity to present new work in an informal setting, or to share with a ‘home’ audience papers intended for presentation at conferences further afield. The seminar meets monthly (though not in August), usually on the last Friday of each month, but with some flexibility depending on speaker availability. The ASNC Research Seminar is open for all members of the university to attend.  Seminars are followed by a trip to a local pub.
