Seminars and Colloquia

The School of Physics and Astronomy offers a series of vibrant colloquia and research seminars. These talks are delivered by invited guests from local and international institutions, as well as researchers from Monash.

All talks are held at the Clayton Campus: Getting to Monash Clayton Campus | Clayton Campus Map: Where to find the School of Physics and Astronomy

Colloquia are accessible to a general physics audience (undergraduates to academics); seminars are targeted at postgraduate students and researchers with a relevant background. All talks run for approximately 1 hour.

Australian Meeting on Accelerator-Based Particle Physics
This workshop will focus on future directions for the field of accelerator-based particle physics in Australia, and will also serve as a trial for a meeting format to help us keep in touch, enhance collaborations, and co-strategise in the post-CoEPP era. The program will comprise both research talks as well as more strategy oriented sessions focusing on vision and plans.
