How to book a seminar

School seminars: You will need to check the seminar page for availability, then email and the seminar coordinators (see top of page) with details of speaker, institution and proposed date. If your speaker requires travel and accommodation please contact Anna. Please send abstract (Word doc) to Anna a week before the event so it can be advertised properly in ChemNews and the TV screen in the foyer. For Friday seminars only, tell Anna whether the lunch will be with students (in room 418) or with academics. In the week of the seminar, organise the schedule for the day; if necessary, organise for 3 to 5 students to attend the lunch (nominating 1 to pick up the lunch from Anna, and another to take the speaker to room 418. If your speaker would also like to give a talk at UNSW (their seminars are on Thursday), the seminar coordinators can organize this for you. The cost will be split between USYD and UNSW. School seminars are held on Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:00 am.

Early career researcher seminars: The first Wednesday of each month 11:00 am seminar session has been set aside for postdoctoral and other early career researchers to present their research to the school. This will be a chance to increase the visibility of the postdocs in the school and of course learn about chemistry. Research presented will range from PhD work, previous postdoc work or current research being undertaken within the school, depending on the desire of the presenter. The host for each month will be the previous months presenter so please check seminar page. Please send abstract (Word doc) to a week before the event so it can be advertised properly in Chemistry Events and the TV screen in the foyer.

Postgraduate seminars: Check for availability of Mondays then advise your supervisor, seminar coordinators (see top of page) and of the date. Please send abstract to Anna a week before the event so it can be advertised properly. Postgraduate seminars are held on Mondays from 4:00 pm.

All others (known as Special seminars): You will need to check the seminar page for availability, bearing in mind that the School seminars (Wednesdays and Fridays at 11:00am) and Postgraduate seminars (Mondays at 4:00 pm) are permanently booked. Once you have chosen a date and time please email details (including preferred venue; date, time, name of speaker and institution) to seminar coordinators (see top of page) and . Please send abstract to Anna and Anne a week before the event so it can be advertised properly. Please note that Anna has to book a lecture theatre/room so it is important to notify her of any proposed special seminars - do not assume that a chemistry LT is available.
