## Overview – Fall 2023

In selected weeks, we will have formal seminar talks by external speakers. All other talks in the theory seminar are held by students for students. Clearly, faculty members will also participate. The format is informal. The talks are 30 minutes long, two talks per session (one by a HEP student, the other by a CMT student), plus 15 minutes of discussion time.

**Location:** GL329

**Time:** Thursdays at 16:30 (Central Time)
