Seminars & Events

All students in the group must attend the Thursday seminars, which are formally part of their graduate training programme.


All seminars in Physics are listed here and all seminars organised by Theoretical Physics here. Those of particular interest to particle theorists are listed below:

Theoretical Particle Physics Seminar
@ 4.00 pm Thursdays (Simpkins Lee Room)
Formal weekly seminar of the Particle Theory Group.
The organiser Subir Sarkar welcomes suggestions for potential speakers.

*These are also posted on iNSPIRE and the UK HEP Community webpage*

Dalitz Seminar in Fundamental Physics
@ 1 pm Thursdays (Simpkins Lee Room)
Informal lunchtime talks organised by Frederic Dreyer.

Experimental Particle Physics Seminar
