SIfA Seminars

Seminars are held weekly typically on Fridays at 11am-12pm in LT5 at the School of Physics building (A28). If you wish to give a talk or presentation please email Jesse van de Sande, Apsem Jibrail, or Shourya Khanna

Unfortunately, we do not have general funds available to cover travel or accommodation costs. If you would like to give a talk or are scheduled at a time that you will be away please let us know ASAP. If you have students or visitors that are going to have interesting topics to talk about please dob them in. Let us know if you will be giving a long (~45min) or short (~20min) talk, so we can have either 2 short talks or 1 long talk each week.
