# Research at UW-Madison in DifferentialEquations

## Seminars of interest

The weekly PDE & Geometric Analysis seminar is held on Monday afternoons, 3:30-4:30pm.

Other seminars that will feature PDE related material are the Geometry and Topology seminar, the Analysis seminar, and the Applied and Computational Math seminar.

## Upcoming events

This spring the **Midwest PDE seminar** will be held in Madison on April 21/22 (2018).
