Njord seminar series Fall 2022

We are working on this autumn's seminar series. The overview for the Fall 2022 will be updated as soon as it is ready.
Below you will find the exciting program for spring semester of 2022.

We have an exciting and diverse schedule for you, with interesting speakers and topics, and we are very much looking forward to the talks. New for this semester is that some of the talks will be by researchers from Njord. All talks in the series this semester will be on Zoom on Fridays, for staff on campus it will be possible to join the seminar from room Kelvin when the current COVID19-regulations allow for it. Most seminars will be at 2 PM CET, but because we have speakers from different time zones there can be some variations, so please check the schedule.

Below you can see the schedule. The seminars are 45 minutes or 30+10 minutes, with 10-15 minutes allocated for questions and discussion.
