The CICMA / QVNTS webpage

The Quebec-Vermont Seminar is a regular bi-weekly seminar alternating between Montreal, Burlington, Vermont, and Quebec City. Founded in 1984 by Hershy Kisilevsky and David Dummit, it is one of the longest continuously-running seminars of its kind in North America. This website contains a list of (many of) lectures in the Quebec-Vermont seminars (and related activities) going back to its inception.
