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.

20200601 June 1, 2020, 11:00 am Particle Astrophysics Seminar: Cosmic discordances Eleonora Di Valentino, University of Manchester Abstract: The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) temperature and polarization anisotropy measurements from the Planck mission have provided strong confirmation of the LCDM model of structure formation. However, there are a few interesting tensions with other cosmological probes and anomalies in the data that leave the door open to possible extensions to LCDM. The most famous... More »

20200615 June 15, 2020, 2:00 pm Particle Astrophysics Seminar: The Renaissance of Astro-Physics: a landscape of opportunities in the era of Time Domain Multi-Messenger investigations Raffaella Margutti, Northwestern Abstract: Astronomical transients are signposts of catastrophic events in space where physics happens at conditions not testable on earth, including the most extreme stellar deaths, stellar tidal disruptions by supermassive black holes, and mergers of compact objects. Thanks to new and improved observational facilities we can now sample the night sky with unprecedented temporal cadence... More »
