Condensed Matter Seminar Series

The purpose of this seminar series is to bring to the Institute the international experts focusing on a broad variety of problems in condensed matter physics and materials science. The talks cover all kinds of theoretical, computational and experimental problems with a strong emphasis on the integration of theory (computation) and experiment. This seminar series is sponsored by the Marie-Curie International Re-integration Grant "MesoPhysDef" No. 207745.
