  3. The default room is Avery Hall 115. If there is a different room needed, please include the room number.
  4. The default event is a colloquium. If the talk is for a different event, please include the name of the Department of Mathematics event.
  5. The name of the speaker (as it should appear)
  6. The professional title of the speaker (i.e., Professor, Dr., etc.)
  7. The organizational affiliations of the speaker
  8. The title of the talk

  12. Any special needs for the talk

General Suggestions/Information for Colloquia

  • The dates are first come, first served.
  • If the preferred date is reserved by a UNL math faculty member, please talk to him/her about trading dates so a visiting speaker can have the preferred date.
  • It is preferred that the talk be at a level that can be understood by graduate students.
  • Test the technology before the talk.
  • Figure out ahead of time who will introduce the speaker.
