The Department Seminars (Colloquia) are broad range presentations about hot topics in Physics that are both timely and of high scientific impact.
They are addressed to all people doing research and teaching duties inside the Physics Department. Moreover, they are one of the pillars for the training of our PhD students. Additionally, people from other research institutes which are close partners of the Department and are located in Trento's area are invited to join.
The seminar speakers are usually international leading scientists. They are asked to provide high-standard presentations, but at a level that is accessible also to a wide audience of non-expert physicists.
The list of speakers is usually established on a yearly base, with the precious input of the Department staff and of the PhD students, when feasible.
Each of these Colloquia is one hour long, including the final questions, and there is a Colloquioum per month, usually on Wednesday afternoon.
