SEB THEMED LECTURES: PROPOSE A TALK

 

Over the coming year, the SEB is introducing a new virtual lecturer series themed around significant dates or holidays in the calendar. The aim is to have short 30-minute talks (followed by audience Q&A) that have a broad interest and will be engaging for all members and interested parties, no matter their background or career level.

If you have would like to present or know someone who would please get in contact at   [email protected].

If you already have a good idea of the format for the talk, then please include the speakers name, title for the talk, and a short abstract or key take-away points, and available dates. If you have a more general idea for a talk, topic or would just like to know more, then we would also love to hear from you.

Please see a list of suggested themes below, but we will also welcome other theme suggestions.
