The northern equivalent of COW is
which meets in Glasgow, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Newcastle.
The midlands equivalent of COW is
which meets in Nottingham, Loughborough, Leicester and Sheffield. Do
not be confused by one of the COW's LMS official supporters being at
Loughborough, nor by tEmSG's webpage being in Sydney.
A more local but even less specific seminar is the London Topology and
Geometry Seminar, also known as G&T.
is a seminar organised by and for graduate students in geometry.
