Fifth annual Science Day for Physics master students
- Tuesday 8 September 2020
On Tuesday 8 September, the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) organizes the fifth edition of its annual Science Day. Scientists from disciplines all across the physics spectrum will elaborate on their research during fourteen interactive talks. LION organizes the event to introduce first year master students to the full range of physics topics that are studied in Leiden.
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 drinks. 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 4, 12 noon through this link.
