The Asymptotic Safety seminars...


...have been promoted and are organized by Astrid Eichhorn. There is no fixed schedule: a seminar is convened when a speaker is available. In order to participate, either as a listener or as a speaker, please send an email to Astrid at the address given here. The seminar is held as a Skype audio group call. Video is not used. The speaker sends in advance the slides to the participants.

Technical notes.

The calls are started from a fixed "asymptotic safety" account. If you want to be included in the call please be visibly online a few minutes before the seminar starts and wait for the PI call.

For listeners. Please be online a few minutes before the seminar starts, out of courtesy to the speaker. Most importantly: to avoid local noises being heard by everyone, keep the microphone muted, using the appropriate button in the call window (there is no need to physically unplug the microphone). Un-mute the microphone only if you want to ask a question.
