The GEARS seminar

The Glasgow Edinburgh Algebra Research Student Seminar

The Glasgow Edinburgh Algebra Research Student seminar is an informal meeting between algebra (loosely interpreted!) PhD students and postdocs from Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt, and Glasgow universities. We meet roughly five times per year and give participants the opportunity to either speak about their research, or present an important paper in their area. These meetings normally take place in the late afternoon/evening and the location alternates between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Due to the ongoing pandemic, GEARS will take place virtually.

The GEARS seminar is currently organised by Alex Levine (Heriot-Watt) and Ross Paterson (Glasgow). In previous years this seminar has been organised by: Jenny August, Chris Campbell, Simon Crawford, Okke van Garderen, Tomasz Przezdziecki, Ruth Reynolds, Angela Tabiri, Tim Weelinck and Noah White.

We are grateful for the financial support from the Glasgow Mathematical Journal Learning and Research Support Fund.
