Workshops and Colloquia
We invite graduate students in the Applied Physics, Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and NanoEngineering, and Statistics departments to present a 5 or 12 minute talk on their current research.
The Smalley-Curl Institute (SCI) Summer Research Colloquium began in 1986 as the RQI Colloquium, and has taken place in August of each year since then. The purpose of the SCI Summer Research Colloquium is to provide undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers working at Rice with an opportunity to present their most recent work.
The Kavli Foundation workshops aim at communicating the current state of the art across a range of interrelated fields, and envisioning future needs and developments that will drive both the science and technology of sensing. Each workshop in a series features invited talks by experts in the field followed by moderated round table discussions between the speakers and other attendees.
