Accelerator Seminars

The Accelerator seminar committee hosts a series of speakers throughout the year on general accelerator physics related topics. Attendance is open lab-wide, and suggestions for future speakers are welcome.

Accelerator Seminars are scheduled weekly on Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. If you would like to schedule or suggest a seminar topic, please contact the committee for approval.
