Seminar and Colloquia Series

Perimeter Institute organizes a lively program of seminars, regularly exposing researchers to current ideas in the wider theoretical physics community.  In addition, many of the colloquium talks provide content outside of, but related to, core disciplines. Scientists at surrounding universities and institutions are welcome to attend Perimeter’s Seminars and Colloquia. Below are details and listings for each of Perimeter Institute Seminar and Colloquium Series.

INTERNATIONAL LOOP QUANTUM GRAVITY 

Chair: Eugenio Bianchi
