Journal Clubs

Cosmology Journal Club
Date / time: Wednesday at 14:00
Host Institution: ICCUB
Place: Physics Department UB, DAM Seminar
E-mail: germani@icc.ub.edu

This journal club is to discuss any papers and topics related to cosmology, both observational and theoretical. We want to have participants doing research on astrophysical, high-energy physics and relativity aspects of cosmology. We have been using the webpage http://iccub.voxcharta.org/ , where you can see the arxiv papers in a useful format for our discussion, vote for any paper that you are interested in discussing, and see the papers that have been voted for by other ICC members. We usually have one person at each meeting discuss either one of these papers or some work of their own, and then we can discuss other papers that have been voted. Any spontaneous topic that arises at the meetings is also welcome.

If you are interested in receiving all the announcements for this meeting, please make sure to ask
Cristiano Germani to include you in the list.

Gravity and Strings Journal Club
Date / time: Thursdays 11:45am
Host Institution: ICCUB
Place: Room 3.28 (Faculty of Physics)

Particle Physics Phenomenology Journal Club
Date / time: Mondays at 14.00
Host Institution: ICCUB
Place: Aula 507 (Faculty of Physics)
E-mail: mgechevarria@icc.ub.edu

In this journal club the idea is to discuss recent papers related to Particle Physics Phenomenology. Each session will be led by a volunteer, which will give an informal blackboard talk about a paper of his/her choice, with the aim to feed the discussion among the participants. Apart from this, some sessions could also consist of a summary of a relevant conference in the field that the speaker has attended.

 

Quantum Breakfast Journal Club
Date / time: Fridays at 9.30
Host Institution: ICCUB
Place: Peixera, 6th floor (Faculty of Physics)
E-mail: luca.tagliacozzo@fqa.ub.edu

During the Quantum breakfast we will discuss about interesting results in the fields of quantum information/ many-body quantum physics / cold atoms and quantum computation that appear in the arXiv and that we would like to better understand. A short arXiv survey will be followed by a short talk about a topic of interest. All information about the discussion is collected in the google group.
