ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP Physics Discussions

 

Home

ICTP-SAIFR/IFT-UNESP Physics Discussions is a new bi-weekly colloquium/discussion for graduate students and researchers. In addition to a 60-minute colloquium for all, the activity includes a 20-minute discussion of research and career choices before the colloquium and a 20-minute discussion of physics after the colloquium just for graduate students. The colloquium will be broadcast live on Youtube, but the discussion session before and after the colloquium will use a Zoom platform restricted to graduate students which has limited space.

The Registration form for graduate students who would like to participate via Zoom is HERE

The Youtube link for the colloquium transmitted live will be posted on this website.
