Pacific Institute of Theoretical Physics Lectures on Quantum Phenomena: These PITP public lectures are intended for a broad audience (including the general public), from inside and outside the university. While the seminars concentrate on questions associated in some way with quantum phenomena, ideas on various foundational problems in physics and the philosophy of science are also covered. Past lecturers include physicists, philosophers, and historians, and in the future we envisage other lecturers from outside science.

Visit the PITP Lectures Website for the schedule of  upcoming talks, and an archive of past talks.

TRIUMF Talks: TRIUMF offers a wide variety of seminars given both by world-class scientists who are visiting the laboratory and by those who work at TRIUMF. The general TRIUMF Seminars are meant to be accessible to all physics graduate students.
