  • MARVEL Junior Seminar — June 2023

    Jun 29, 2023, from 12:15 until 13:15, Coviz2 (MED 2 1124), EPFL + Zoom

    The MARVEL Junior Seminar series is continuing in hybrid mode, in order to maintain in-person contacts and allow off-campus attendees to follow the seminars remotely! The MARVEL Junior Seminars aim to intensify interactions between the MARVEL Junior scientists belonging to different research groups.  We are pleased to propose the 52nd MARVEL Junior Seminar: Giovanni Piccioli (Statistical Physics and Computational Lab, EPFL) and Anooja Jayaraj (nanotech@surfaces lab, Empa) will present their research. The seminar will be chaired by Alessandro Carbone (THEOS, EPFL).

  • 2023 Summer camp for high-school students

    Jun 26, 2023, 9:00 until Jun 30, 2023, 16:00, EPFL, Lausanne

    The 1-week camp entitled Des atomes aux ordinateurs, à la découverte de la programmation scientifique  is open to teenagers in the last two years of high-school, with no high-level in maths or physics prerequisite. A prior knowledge of the basics of programming is recommended. It is possible to acquire these notions independently if necessary (within 3-4 hours). Half of the seats are reserved for young women.
