Particle Theory Seminars

Seminars are normally held in the Physical Sciences Building room 401 on Wednesdays at 2 pm and on Fridays at 12:30 pm (pizza at noon).

If there is no external speaker, the Friday seminar is used for the particle theory journal club with mostly local speakers. Click here for information to help speakers planning their trip to Ithaca. For more information please contact Eric Kuflik (, Sandipan Kundu (, or Katerina Malysheva (
