PhD Colloquia and Seminars
The Physics Colloquia host distinguished guest speakers who highlight the forefront of ongoing research in Physics and in related fields. Colloquia are addressed to a general audience of graduate students (M.Sci. and PhD) in all areas of physics. Presentations last about 45-min, followed by an ample discussion time. The Colloquia series provides an excellent opportunity for the graduate students to get a feeling of different research areas in physics and related fields, to sample the various research opportunities for future jobs and to talk directly with leading scientists. The Physics Seminars are similar to the Colloquia, but they may deal with more focused subjects and can be somewhat more specialized.
