Geometry Seminar

Usually on Friday @ 13:00 - Aula A

The seminar of the Geometry group follows the scheme of a working seminar, with topics often discussed by the same speaker over the course of several seminars.

BAT-MAT: Biscuits and Tea - Maths

Usually every forthnight on Thursday @14:30

The seminar promotes the interaction between the members of the Department, givin graduate students, postdocs and junior researchers the opportunity to present their own research in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Online Seminar Series

Geometric Representation Theory at home

Since the beginning of the CoVid-19 emergency, many mathematical activities and seminar series moved to an online format,and it is now possible to choose seminars not on the basis of location and membership, but mainly on the basis of research interests. The website of GRT@home is designed as a portal for the widespread community of mathematicians with interests in the interplay between geometry and representation theory. In particular, it features a list of seminars of interests currently available online all around the world.


The seminar is collectively organized by a large group of mathematicians led by Anton Mellit (University of Vienna). The members of the Steering Committee based in Italy are Andrea Appel (Università di Parma) and Francesco Sala (Università di Pisa).

Italian Online Representation Theory Seminar

The Italian Research Group in Geometric representation theory is a local network with participants from several other Universities across Italy, such as the University of L'Aquila, the University of Pisa, the University of Rome La Sapienza and the University of Rome Tor Vergata. The main scope of the group is to coordinate a series of inter-university activities including graduate courses at the master and doctorate level, working seminars, and research meetings.

During the pandemic, the group organized the Italian Online Representation Theory Seminar in the forms of weekly online meetings.
