Mesa & Mira Computational Science Lectures

Several groups in computational science within the MESA+ and MIRA Institutes share a common interest in computational theory, mathematics, physics, and chemistry. Together, we have started the inter-faculty, inter-institute Mesa & Mira Computational Science Lectures.

This seminar series is now part of the activities of the Twente Center for Scientific Computing. A list of recent seminars can be found here.

Soft Matter+ Colloquia

Together with the annual SoftMatter+ Day, the Soft Matter+ Colloquia colloquia aim at bringing together the MESA+ researchers in this research area and to showcase the excellent Soft Matter work performed within the university of Twente and the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology.

Seminars are generally held on the third Thursday of the month at 12:30 pm in ZH286. The colloquia have the following schedule in 2016 and 2017:
