Resources - Free physics online seminar series
Updated: Jan 5, 2022
A silver lining of the pandemic is that many conferences and events went online and many of them ran free of charge last year. Unfortunately, this has changed in 2021 and for some it is business as usual once more. I was shocked & dismayed to see that many learned societies in my field are charging huge fees for online events, which are comparable to their onsite counterparts, and that the material cannot be freely accessed due to corporate barriers. In onsite conferences there is catering, conference dinner, speakers' local expenses, but now??? IT cannot be that expensive! Like this, they exclude whole regions in the planet from prompt access to information, such as the Global South.
For that reason, below you will find links to physics seminar series and events that are free of charge and can be watched from anywhere in the globe.
Atto Fridays & Quantum Battles in Attoscience: We are running this one - every second Friday at 3pm London time. Info at https://www.quantumbattles.com/
Pseudo-Hermitian Hamiltonians in Quantum Physics (XIX<vPHHQP<XX) - Thursdays at 3pm London time. Info: https://vphhqp.com/
QUANTUM INFORMATION, QUANTUM TECHNOLOGIES & QUANTUM GRAVITY IN LABORATORY: Tuesdays. Sometimes at 3pm/4pm London time (US speakers), or 10 am (Aus/Japan speakers), while European speakers generally at 3pm/4pm. Info: https://www.quantumgravityinlab.com/
AttoChem Network: It will start on the 23rd of June & will run till October 2021. Time/day of the week may vary. See https://brightelm.eventsair.com/attochem-webinar-series-2021/reg/Site/Register
Quantum Science Seminar -- every Thursday at 17:00 CET or CEST (Central European Time or Central European Summer Time). Info at https://quantumscienceseminar.com/
Lund Attoscience Symposium - monthly two-hour sessions on Wednesdays from 16:00 to 18:00. Info at https://www.atomic.physics.lu.se/research/lund-attosecond-science-center/lund-attoscience-symposium-2021/
Many of the series stated above have their own YouTube channels, so that you may watch as a passive viewer at your own time. If you know of any other event that is not included, please let me know.
