Post-Graduate Research Talks (2015/2016)

The ICCMR hosts a series of talks, where members of ICCMR report progress on ongoing research projects. The talks are open to students of the university and partner colleges. We occasionally invite external speakers to give seminars.

Members are also encouraged to attend seminars hosted by our partners in Music (School of Humanities and Performing Arts), and the Cognition institute. Generally, members of the University's academic community, partner colleges and collaborating institutions are most welcome.
