Colloquia and Research Seminars

Departmental Colloquia are research talks pitched at the wider physics and astronomy audience (including final year undergraduates). During the eleven weeks of the semester there are six colloquia (nominally three astronomy based and three physics based). The colloquia take place every second week. During the other weeks there are research seminars aimed at postgraduate level and above (two seminars each week - one physics and one astronomy).

Arrangements for the Colloquia are split between the coordinators of the Physics Seminars (Sang Soon Oh) and the Astronomy Seminars coordinators (Dr Andrew Rigby). Please contribute to the seminar programme, instructions are available on the PHYSX Wiki.

Unless otherwise noted all colloquia and seminars take place in room N/3.28.
