Particle physics seminars

The (TE)HEP science coffees and the THEP Informal sessions

This is the joint seminar series of the theoretical and experimental high energy physics groups. Present organizers are Roman Pasechnik (theory seminars) and Alice Ohlson (experiment seminars). Seminars are usually on Tuesdays at 11.15 in the HUB lecture room (previously called seminar room D) for the theory seminars or in H422 for the experiment seminars.
