Seminar and Workshop Programme

The CNT normally holds monthly seminars and workshops. The seminars will be given by distinguished speakers from within UCL and from other institutions. The workshops will be thematically organized, and will provide an opportunity for researchers within UCL working on closely related topics to exchange ideas and insights. Refreshments will be provided after the seminar, giving the opportunity for discussion with the speaker. In addition, an annual one-day March or July Workshop will be held, to which internationally-known external speakers will be invited, as well as presentations and posters from local contributors. This Workshop will be held in suitable UCL premises, and is intended to allow maximal opportunity for development of collaborative projects.

The monthly seminars normally take place on the first Thursday of each month at 17:00 and the workshops at 16:00 also on Thursdays, in the 4th Floor Seminar Room of the Functional Imaging Laboratory (FIL), 12 Queen Square. All welcome. Free admission, no need to register in advance.
