LIDA Seminar Series

LIDA Seminar Series

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to recent developments, and in accordance with the University’s policy of moving all classes online, for the foreseeable future all LIDA Seminars will be delivered digitally. There will not be the opportunity to present or attend the seminars in person until further notice.

Resources permitting, we will aim to deliver digitally recorded seminar presentations every Thursday as per the current seminar schedule, although this may not always be possible. Updates on when digital presentations are available to download will made via this webpage and the LIDA twitter account (@LIDA_UK).
