Theory Seminars 2018/19

The ‘Theory Group Seminar' is a regular meeting of the Theoretical Particle Physics group. It usually takes place on Wednesday at 11:30 in Aula Bianchi (first floor). The seminars last for 50 minutes leaving time for questions and discussion. 

Additional seminars (title in italic in the programme below) are also organized occasionally on other days or at a different time.
