Symposium Trends in Theory 2022
14th biennial symposium of the Dutch Research School of Theoretical Physics.
The symposium is organized to give an overview of research activities in theoretical physics in the Netherlands. We look forward to welcoming all members of the DRSTP on this occasion.
Thursday 19 + Friday 20 May 2022
- Target group:
Interested non-DRSTP members, as well as Master’s students, are also invited to attend. In case of overbooking, priority will, however, be given to DRSTP members.
