  • MARVEL Junior Seminar — June 2024

    Jun 07, 2024, from 12:15 until 13:15, Coviz2 (MED 2 1124), EPFL + Zoom

    The MARVEL Junior Seminars aim to intensify interactions between the MARVEL Junior scientists belonging to different research groups – this is held in hybrid mode, in order to maintain in-person contacts and allow off-campus attendees to follow the seminars remotely! We are pleased to propose the 60th MARVEL Junior Seminar: Edan Bainglass and Marnick Bercx (Materials Software and Data Group, PSI) will present their research. The seminar will be chaired by Sanggyu Chong (Laboratory of computational science and modelling, EPFL).

  • 2024 Summer camp for high-school students

    Jun 24, 2024, 9:00 until Jun 28, 2024, 16:00, EPFL, Lausanne

    The 1-week camp entitled Des atomes aux ordinateurs, à la découverte de la programmation scientifique is open to teenagers in the last two years of high-school, with no high-level in maths or physics prerequisite. A prior knowledge of the basics of programming is recommended. It is possible to acquire these notions independently if necessary (within 3-4 hours). Half of the seats are reserved for young women. In 2024, it will take place from 24 to 28 June at EPFL and registrations are open until 15 May.
