BAPC - Calendar for the Week of May 11

This is the last week of the main calendar (as more and more schools have their graduation, the numbers of colloquiums diminish).  Going forward, and through the summer, please send all seminar announcements to the BAPC late e-mail site. 






May 11 – May 15, 2015


The Boston Area Physics Calendar is published weekly during the academic year by the Department of Physics at MIT.  Entries should be sent no later than 2:00 pm on the Wednesday before the week of the actual event.

NOTE: Entries that are past the deadline will have to be sent by you to the BAPC late entry email address listed below.

ON-TIME submissions:  Send to
