About the Colloquium
The Physics Department Colloquium is a series of seminars from scientists about their research. It also provides an opportunity for physics graduate students to deliver professional talks. All seminars are open to anyone who is interested.
Times and Locations
The Physics Colloquium is held in Engineering/Physics 216 each Monday at 3:30 pm. As there is limited space available on location due to COVID-19, colloquium sessions are also offered via Zoom this semester.
If you wish to attend physics seminars in person in EP 216, please be aware that you will be required to:
(1) wear a face covering over your mouth and nose at all times
(2) social distance as much as possible (the room capacity will be capped at 28).
We do not have presentations on holidays.
