The Imperial College Particle Phenomenology, Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology (PPPAC or '3-PAC') Seminars are a joint series run by the HEP, Theory and Astrophysics groups.  Talks are held fortnightly during term time, generally on Fridays at 1pm in the Theory Seminar Room (Huxley 503), and are followed by coffee and biscuits.

The seminar calendar below is available for you to add to your own calendar in XMLICAL and HTML.
