Semester Topic: Synergy – different views on the same topic

In selected weeks, we will have formal seminar talks by external speakers. All other talks in the HEP seminar are held by students for students. Clearly, faculty members will also participate. The format is informal. The talks are 45 minutes long, plus a generous amount of discussion time.

Location: 338 Gallalee Hall
Time: 3:00 p.m.
