Seminars

Information concerning GCOE seminars

GCOE seminars are generally to be given in English. However, we also welcome Japanese seminars in the case that they are of broad interest or are of an inter-disciplinary nature. (For seminars given in Japanese, we strongly recommend that slides be prepared in English.) We also encourage seminars that are organized together with informal group meetings.

The announcement for each GCOE seminar is presented in the seminar guide of the GCOE website. Announcement leaflets for display on bulletin boards are also distributed.
The announcement form (A4) can be download here.
This should be sent to gcoe-office@scphys.kyoto-u.ac.jp after it is filled out.
