In its second year, the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization, will hold three lectures a year to continue to honour William Tutte. In the inaugural year of the series we hosted several speakers each week between May and August.
Below, find a list of the speakers as the information becomes available. All the lectures are free, open to the public and no registration is required.
If you're not able to make the lecture, we will post a recording on the department's YouTube Channel.
For more information about the series, contact the department at firstname.lastname@example.org
