The seminars are held every Friday in the Adamson Wing of Baker Hall. They go from 3:30 - 5:00, but refreshments are served upstairs at 3:15. Food cannot be brought downstairs (sorry, but that's not our rule), so arrive early if you want to munch and talk to your collegues. Please don't leave in the middle of a seminar; it's very demoralizing for the speaker.
