Back to the Graduate Student Seminar Homepage
Seminars are held on
Fridays at noon in the Physics Room 299 this semester.
The seminars are given by Duke Physics graduate students and post-docs
and run between 20 and 40 minutes in length. The atmosphere is intended
to be friendly and that of a learning experience for everyone involved.
No faculty attend the seminar, to enhance the atmosphere of a meeting of
Physics graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend and all
post-docs are invited.
Lunch, usually pizza, is provided.
