There is a seminar mailing list, which you can join by sending an empty email to sympa@maillist.ox.ac.uk with subject "subscribe discmathprob Firstname Lastname" (replace "Firstname Lastname" appropriately!). There is also a Google calendar, which can be found here (you can subscribe by following the link and clicking on the + sign in the bottom right hand corner).

We will put up a Zoom link on the seminar page for each talk shortly before the talk starts. Subject to permission from the speakers, we record the talks and make them available on YouTube later. [Please note this for GDPR purposes!]

If you have problems or questions about the seminar, please contact one of the organizers: Christina Goldschmidt and Alex Scott.
