Some interesting seminar and conferences in Montreal


Symplectic seminar

Organised by CIRGET
Friday from 1:40pm to 2:40pm, UQAM Président-Kennedy Building PK-5115

The symplectic seminar is a weekly specialized seminar on symplectic topology and related topics, and welcomes researchers from all over the world. Warning: the talks are usually not for the broad mathematics community, but those more knowledgeable on symplectic topology.


Geometry and topology seminar

Organised by CIRGET
Friday from 11:00am to 12:00pm, UQAM Président-Kennedy Building PK-5115

The geometry and topology seminar is a weekly event welcoming researchers in geometry and topology, as the name would suggest. Since the subject of geometry and topology is quite broad, the talks are usually less technical and thus, understandable for the broad mathematics community.


Colloque des sciences mathématiques du Québec

Organised by ISM
Friday from 4:00pm to 5:00pm, McGill Burnside Building 1104

The Colloque des sciences mathématiques du Québec is a weekly event welcoming world reknown researchers from every branch of mathematics. The accessibility of the talks varies greatly depending on who is speaking. It also doubles as a reception when there are prizes given by ISM or CRM.


Séminaire étudiant en mathématiques

Organised by AECSMS
Wednesday from 4:00pm to 5:00pm, UdeM Andre-Aisenstadt Building AA-1355

The séminaire étudiant en mathématiques is organised by and is for graduate students in mathematics. It consists mostly of talks given by graduate students at Université de Montréal, but also sometimes features graduate students from other Montreal universities. It aims to be accessible to anyone having a bachelor degree in mathematics.

About me

Photo de moi

I am doing a PhD in symplectic topology at Université de Montréal under the supervision of Octav Cornea. My current research mostly deals with Lagrangian cobordisms and their role in studying the Fukaya category of a symplectic manifold.

Apart from mathematics, my interests lie in art house cinema, music, and specialty coffee. You can usually find me at any university event with free food and drinks
