LLC Joint Seminars

The idea of the LLC joint seminar is to have broad lectures by well-known international scientists interlaced with overview lectures of LLC activities, primarily by senior LLC scientists. Everyone is welcome to attend the seminars.

 

UPCOMING LLC JOINT SEMINARS

The seminars are normally held in Rydbergssalen at the Department of Physics, Sölvegatan 14, Lund.
