The DIPC International Physics Colloquia (DIPC) is an initiative to arrange monthly colloquium-style talks by outstanding speakers covering all areas of natural sciences.
The intended audience of the colloquia are all interested scientists at the DIPC and neighboring institutes, from PhD student to professor and in all fields of physics and sister sciences.
Colloquium speakers are encouraged to give broadly accessible talks with emphasis on providing an overview and general ideas of their research field as well as a personal view of the open questions, grand challenges, and future research directions.
The colloquia will held in the DIPC lecture hall (building 1) and generally be scheduled on Thursdays at 17:30, the idea being that it's the last event of the day. The duration of the talk is one hour including questions from the audience.
The DIPC will offer a small "askari/merienda" with drinks and snacks after the talk to make occasion to talk with the speaker and colleagues about the presentation.
