titleEditing guidelines

Talks listed on the table should be sorted in descending order (i.e., newer items appear first) and filed under the respective semester. If you notice that an edit broke the order, please consider fixing it.

Talks and Workshops

This page lists the talks and workshops that have been organized by the math society. Sometimes we also link to external talks / events that are open to math society members. Usually such talks should be highlighted and hyperlinked to the original source.
