Number Theory Seminar Organizational MeetingExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, July 19, 2022 — 2:30 PM EDT

In the before times the Pure Math department held a regular Number Theory seminar.  It would be nice to restart this seminar in the Fall term.  As this is a restart of the seminar, we do not need to conform to previous models.  I felt it would be easiest to have an organizational seminar next week to discuss the various options and gather feedback on the best format.  Some thoughts to think about

  • Should the seminar be online, in person, hybrid?
  • Should the seminar be weekly, bi-weekly, sporadic?
  • Is there a regular time of week that works well?
  • What format should the seminar be?  Some formats I have seen elsewhere include:
    • Traditional 50 minute seminar + 5 minutes questions.
    • Shorter talk followed by more interactive discussion / questions
    • Shorter initial talk, break (for snacks?), followed by technical details.
    • Open problems type seminar where answers may not be known, but the questions are interesting.
  • What would you like to get out of a number theory seminar?
  • Recommended names of speakers?

If you have thoughts you would like to share, but are unable to attend in person, please email them to myself (kghare@uwaterloo.ca).

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are especially welcome.
