Virtual East-West Several Complex Variables seminar

The seminar series started in April 2020, and is now over.


The seminars will take place over Zoom. Some basics:

  • You can join for free by clicking on the link that we will provide on each email announcement.

  • Please log in with your real name.

  • Audience microphones will be muted by default.

  • There is a text-based chat. If you would like to ask a question using your microphone, you can ask in the chat for your microphone to be turned on. Alternatively you can ask questions directly in the chat.

  • Participants also have the ability to chat privately with one another.

  • Each speaker can ask to have his talk video-recorded. Participants will be alerted at the beginning of each session if the talk is being recorded.

We also ask for your patience with any technical difficulties!

Mailing list

There is a mailing list which announces the speakers for each week. To subscribe, send an email to one of the three organizers (see below). You can unsubscribe in a similar way.
