Room
De Sitterzaal, Oortgebouw

On Tuesday September 10, the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) organizes the fourth edition of its annual Science Day. Scientists from disciplines all across the physics spectrum will elaborate on their research during sixteen interactive talks. 

The LION Science Day started out as an afternoon of talks and has now grown into a full-day mini-conference with lectures throughout the day and a borrel. Topics include biophysics, electron microscopy and quantum computation; see attachment for the full schedule.

The event is primarily organized for LION’s first year master students in preparation to their graduation project, but other physics students and LION staff are also more than welcome. They can register until Friday September 6  - 12 PM  through this link
