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.

20210201 Feb. 1, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: Insights on galaxy evolution and morphology from deep learning John Wu, Space Telescope Science Institute Abstract: The growth of galaxies is regulated by the amount of cold gas available to form stars. In order to constrain galaxy evolution models, it is critical to measure the interstellar gas mass and the abundance of heavy elements (metallicity) in the gas phase for large samples of galaxies. However, these properties are observationally difficult... More »
20210208 Feb. 8, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: The fate of hints: recent developments in neutrino phenomenology Thomas Schwetz-Mangold, KIT Abstract: Finite neutrino mass points to new physics beyond the Standard Model. In this talk I give an overview over recent results in neutrino physics, including the results of a combined analysis of latest neutrino oscillation data. We comment on the implications of last years results for the type of neutrino mass ordering (normal versus... More »
20210215 Feb. 15, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: Knocking on the doors of dusty giants in the Universe Darko Donevski, SISSA - Italy Abstract: Since their initial discovery 20 years ago, very distant and massive galaxies that form prodigious amount of young stars – so-called dusty, star-forming galaxies – represent a serious challenge for the theory of galaxy formation. On the one hand, they are difficult to detect because they reside in dense regions of the distant Universe... More »
20210308 March 8, 2021, 2:00 pm US/Central CPC Seminar: Nearest neighbor distributions: New statistical measures for cosmological clustering Arka Banerjee, Fermilab Abstract: The two-point correlation function, or the power spectrum, is the most widely used statistical tool to summarize clustering in the data for cosmological analyses. While the two-point function is a complete statistical description for a Gaussian random field, it does not capture all the information for strongly nonlinear fields relevant for cosmology at low...
