Physical Chemistry Seminars

These talks begin at 2 pm on Wednesday afternoons in Room SCI 512 in the Metcalf Center for Science and Engineering (590 Commonwealth, Boston, MA 02215). There are refreshments provided at the lecture.

Seminars labeled with * and highlighted are part of the Greater Boston Area (GBA) Theoretical Chemistry Lecture Series sponsored by Boston University, Harvard University, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). These joint seminars are held at MIT in Building 4, Room 237 and start at 4:15 pm and run until 6:00 pm.

These “theory afternoons” offer an exciting new seminar medium where in-depth presentations of broadly applicable methods and new approaches are presented. For more information on these joint BU-Harvard-MIT theory seminars (including lecture notes) please see the GBA Theoretical Chemistry Lecture Series.

In addition, the Center for Computational Science runs a seminar series Friday at 12:00pm in PRB595.  See here for the schedule.
