Colloquium

The Fermilab colloquium introduces staff, users, students and members of the public to a wide range of scientific and science-related topics presented by notable speakers from across the country and around the world. An integral part of Fermilab's academic culture, "orange" colloquium talks are aimed at a broad scientific and technical audience, while "green" talks are of general interest to all laboratory staff, users and members of the public.

Colloquiua are open to everyone. Unless otherwise advertised, the talks are held at 4 pm on Wednesday afternoons in the One West auditorium in Wilson Hall. Members of the public wishing to attend must show a photo ID at the laboratory entrance and tell the guard on duty that they are attending the colloquium.
