The NCSE hosts monthly remote seminars with speakers invited to talk about their current research. If you would like to volunteer to give an NCSE seminar please get in touch with the NCSE seminar organiser, Oscar Rodriguez de Rivera Ortega. Links to recordings of some of the seminars are given below. Forthcoming seminars will be advertised on this website, on twitter and via the NCSE mailing list.
