String Theory Seminar:

Typically held on mondays at 16h30, in room P3.10. The audience is sometimes mixed, including not only string theorists or mathematical physicists, but occasionally also mathematicians (mostly geometers) and/or students (both undergraduate and graduate). As such, we usually ask our speakers to take this diverse audience into account, making sure at least half the talk should be comprehensible by everyone attending. (Organizer: Gabriel Lopes Cardoso)

String Video Club:

Alternating with the String Theory Seminar, typically held on mondays at 16h30, in room P3.10. Consists of video talks from conferences or workshops, covering current research trends. Suggestions for upcoming video clubs welcome! (Organizer:)

String Journal Club:

Occasionally held on wednesdays at 14h30, in room P3.10. Consists of blackboard talks covering classical papers in String Theory and Mathematical Physics, within their historical context. In order to make sure we stick to the classics, there is a pre-assigned list from where you may select papers for your upcoming Journal Club in here. (Organizer:)

String Working Seminar:

Alternating with the String Journal Club, occasionally held on wednesdays at 14h30, in room P3.10. Consists of blackboard discussions covering recent research topics of interest to the members of the group. Brainstorming sessions welcome! (Organizer: Gabriel Lopes Cardoso)

Further information on the current topics and schedule of the String Working Seminar may be found here.
