While the lab is operating in a suspended state due to the COVID-19 shelter in place order, seminars have been moved online. A list of online seminars is being maintained by Fermilab here (requires a Fermilab Services account). If you are interested in connecting to the talks remotely without a Fermilab Services account, you can contact Yu-Dai Tsai <> or any of the other members of the Seminar Committee.


Seminars are usually held every Monday at 2PM in Curia II. The Seminar organizers can be found here.

20210510 May 10, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: Baryonic effects in the Effective Field Theory of Large-Scale Structure and an analytic recipe for lensing in CMB-S4 Matthew Lewandowski, Northwestern Abstract: Upcoming Large-Scale Structure surveys will likely become the next leading sources of cosmological information, making it crucial to have a precise understanding of the influence of baryons on cosmological observables. The Effective Field Theory of Large-Scale Structure (EFTofLSS) provides a consistent way to predict the clustering of dark matter and baryons on large scales,... More »
20210517 May 17, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: Deciphering the Biography of Massive Stars: Compact Object Mergers as a Rosetta Stone Michael Zevin, UChicago Abstract: The LIGO—Virgo Collaboration has now announced 50 confident detections of gravitational waves from compact object mergers. These novel observations encode important information about their progenitor stellar systems, such as the types of galactic environments they were born in, the intricacies of stellar evolution that persisted throughout their lives, and the physics of the supernovae...
