Future seminars: Call for expressions of interest

We are keen to hear from colleagues within the network who would like to present a paper to one of the seminars, and/or who would like to suggest their institution for hosting one of the meetings.

Usually the seminars will take place on Thursday afternoons in January, May, September and December - but there is some flexibility.
