About the Series
The SLAC Colloquium Series is the intellectual watering hole for the entire laboratory, where all staff can congregate to hear talks intended for a general audience on a wide variety of subjects. Many of the colloquia, naturally enough, are in areas related to SLAC's mission --- particle physics, astro-particle physics and cosmology, accelerator physics, and photon science. But there are frequently talks from such diverse fields as medicine, atomic and condensed-matter physics, planetary missions, history of science, energy research, education and public policy.
The committee always welcome your suggestions for interesting speakers and topics. And of course we invite your attendance at the Colloquia, at Panofsky Auditorium or Kavli Auditorium at 3:30pm on Monday afternoons, preceded by refreshments at 3:15pm.
