Colloquium Schedule - Fall 2021

Thursdays - 3:45 pm Virtual Zoom Conference.

The Physics and Astronomy colloquium is a forum for invited scientists to present modern research in a fashion accessible to those with a background in physics, but who are not experts in the field. Talks are aimed at a graduate level.

If you have questions about our colloquia or wish to be added to the mailing list for Zoom meetings, please contact Bruno Uchoa at uchoa@ou.edu
