Frontier Research

IFCA organizes a group of seminars in the context of the course 'Frontier research in astrophysics and particle physics', belonging to the "Master in Particle Physics and Physics of the Cosmos":

The aim of this course is to offer a series of seminars covering some of the most recent developments in astrophysics and particle physics, but including also a general introduction to the subject.

Each seminar consists of one hour lecture open to the scientific public, to any member of the IFCA and, in particular, to students of the master. Afterwards, there is a one-hour discussion with the master's students only. Examples of seminars on YouTube:
