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