Physics Latam - New Seminar Series
Mathematics and High Energy Physics Seminars

Physics Without Frontiers (PWF) and PhysicsLatam are thrilled to launch a new seminar series on Mathematics and High Energy Physics, starting on May 12th 2023. Join us for insightful talks from renowned scholars, aimed at deepening our understanding of these fascinating subjects. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to broaden your knowledge and engage in stimulating discussions.

The seminars will be held usually, but not necessarily, on Fridays and will feature presentations by leading researchers in both fields.

These seminars aim to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of the latest research findings in mathematics and high energy physics, with a pedagogical approach. We invite all interested Latin American students, researchers and scholars to attend and participate in these exciting events.
