Colloquia 2017 - 2018

The Colloquia of the Department of Physics take place in the 3rd floor Seminar Room of the Physics Bldg., every Thursday at 5:00pm during the academic year. Occasionally, Special Colloquia are scheduled at alrernative days and times. The talks are in english, should be general and cover topics from all areas of physics and related sciences. The typical audience consists of members of the physics faculty, researchers, visitors, and graduate students as well as other members of the academic and research community of University of Crete and FORTH.

This year the colloquia are supported by the "Crete Center for Quantum Complexity and Nanotechnology", financed by the European Union.
