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 in her web page. 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 the Perimeter Institute 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 make sure that the PI account is in your contacts list before the seminar starts. Also 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.
