Virtual Summer Colloquium

Summer 2020. Colloquium connection information, schedule, recordings

Welcome to Virtual Summer Colloquium 2020, a weekly series which will give the opportunity to doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members to present their research to the Department. The intent of the series is to present the wide variety of interesting research going on in the Department, particularly to the undergraduate students who are doing research projects with us. The colloquia consist of 30-minute talks, presented over Zoom, every Thursday at 4 PM. We hope that the level of the talks is aimed at undergraduate students, but with some technical details to satisfy the curiosity of graduate students, postdocs, and faculty as well. Some talks will also be available via recording which can be found on the respective event's subpage.

Upcoming Colloquia

We are seeking volunteers to present their research in future colloquia, up until the end of August. If you would like to volunteer to present your research, please send the Unofficial Chair of the Unofficial Colloquium Committee (Prof Miriam Diamond, mdiamond@physics.utoronto.ca) an abstract, as well as 2 potential dates for the presentation. We look forward to hearing about your work!
