Nordita is situated in the Albano/AlbaNova University Center campus, as are the two theory groups (CoPS and TKM) in the physics department of Stockholm university (SU), and the theoretical physics department of KTH Royal Institute of Iechnology. Also at AlbaNova is the cross-institutional Oskar Klein Centre (OKC). Since these units share the same interests, we have decided to co-organize seminars, conferences and other scientific events in theoretical physics.
Here is a list of the regularly scheduled seminars and meetings in theoretical physics that are organized by one or more of the theory groups at Albano/AlbaNova.
This is a joint SU/KTH/Nordita seminar series.
Usual time: Mondays at 10:30-11:30, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Usual time: biweekly on Mondays at 13:15-14:15, over zoom.
Usual time: weekly on Mondays at 15:45-16:45, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Seminar of the OKC Beyond the Standard Model Working Group.
This is strongly phenomenology/cosmology-oriented, but occasionally theorists speak. OKC is the Oskar Klein Center, a collaboration between several research groups in physics and astronomy at Stockholm University and KTH.
Usual time: bi-weekly on Tuesdays at 13.15-14.30, usual place: the FA32 seminar room (AlbaNova main building, 3rd floor).
Usual time: weekly on Tuesdays 15:00-16:00.
Usual time: weekly on Tuesdays at 15:45-17:15, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Usual time: weekly on Wednesdays at 11:00-12:30, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Seminar of the OKC Cosmology and Gravity Working Group.
They are being held on Wednesdays, 13:30-14:30 in 122:026. As a rule, all papers submitted by group members to the arXiv are to be presented here. Sometimes there are two talks of 30 minutes instead. This seminar slot is also used for guests and visitors of the group. Several times a year, this slot is also used for joint seminars with the Solar Physics Institute and the group of Göran Scharmer.
In order to keep a dynamic atmosphere and aid scientific exchange, the Wilczek Quantum Center (at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China) regularly organizes meetings of various types, including a biweekly webinar series through zoom, so that all their associate members around the globe can stay in touch.
Usual time: roughly bi-weekly on Wednesdays at 14:00 or 15:00 (CET), over zoom.
Informal talks and discussions intended to help bachelor students in physics to broaden their views.
Usual time: bi- or triweekly on Wednesdays at 15:00-16:00, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Usual time: weekly on Thursdays at 10:30-11:30, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Seminar of the OKC Extreme Objects Working Group.
Theoretical biophysics, complex systems and statistical mechanics seminar; sometimes experimental work is presented. Usual time: weekly on Thursdays 13.00-14.00, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
Seminar of the OKC Theory Working Group.
The AlbaNova/Nordita colloquia are intended for students and staff members in all research fields at AlbaNova - physics, astronomy and biotechnology.
Usual time: Thursdays at 15.15-16.15, usual place: the Oskar Klein Auditorium, FR5 (AlbaNova main building, 4th floor). Coffee and tea is served at 15.00 outside the auditorium.
Organized by and for junior researchers at OKC and Nordita.
Usual time: weekly on Fridays at 16:00-17:00, usual place: the Mega seminar room, 6228.
