CoE ATM Science Forum is a series of seminars for all Center of Excellence members from Physicum, Dynamicum, Chemicum, Viikki and Kuopio. The Science Forum offers an excellent possibility to hear what is going on within the Center of Excellence, and to get in contact with other research groups. The seminars are organized in Dynamicum in Kumpula once in two months. One seminar takes two hours and includes a tutorial by a professor and a scientific presentation by a Post Doc or a PhD-student. Coffee will always be served!

The seminars will also be available via video connection for people in Kuopio. Welcome!
