Monthly colloquium-style talks by outstanding speakers covering all areas of natural sciences


The DIPC Courses are currently organized and coordinated by Geza Giedke and Thomas Frederiksen. You can contact them at

Within DIPC International Physics Colloquia initiative, outstanding guest speakers covering all areas of natural science are invited every month or so to deliver colloquium-style talks.

Scope & aim

The intended audience of DIPC colloquia are all interested scientists at DIPC and neighboring institutes, from PhD student to Professors.

Colloquium speakers are encouraged to give broadly accessible talks with emphasis on providing an overview and general ideas of their research field as well as a personal view of the open questions, grand challenges, and future research directions.

DIPC colloquia are primarily addressed to scientists and may thus contain specialized and technical material, but they are open to anyone interested in science.

Coordinates & format

Colloquia are held in the "Josebe Olarra" DIPC's Seminar Room (building 1, DIPC headquarters) and generally scheduled on Thursday afternoons. The duration of the talk is about one hour. DIPC offers refreshments afterwards to make occasion to meet the speaker and other colleagues and discuss the presentation.
