The Soft Matter Theory group is proud to announce the continuing program, now in its third semester, of Tufts Condensed Matter Physics Seminars. We’ve previously welcomed researchers from other departments at Tufts as well as the Greater Boston and New England areas. Talks take place in the Science and Technology Center, Medford campus room 135 at 1:30pm on Thursdays.
One new feature this semester: we now have a cmseminar e-list. You can sign up to receive announcement and reminder emails through the Tufts email listserv or please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll sign you up.
We’re grateful for funding provided by the Department of Physics & Astronomy to provide coffee for these seminars.
