Social distancing measures necessary to slow the spread of COVID-19 have led to the cancelation of all in-person research activities. Given this unprecedented situation, it is crucial to develop platforms where members of the BSM pheno community can share their work. As (or more) important is the need for an opportunity to connect with each other, and to develop new relationships. This is especially critical for young researchers, who are in early stages of building their physics community networks. As an attempt to address these issues, we present the BSM PANDEMIC series. Talks will continue to be scheduled until it becomes safe to resume in-person interactions. It is our hope that this series will provide a dose of intellectual stimulation with a touch of comfort, as we all navigate these uncertain times.

Code of Conduct

Participants at the BSM PANDEMIC seminars are expected to treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment. We encourage thoughtful debate and discussion during and after the talks, but personal attacks, excessive interruptions, and/or unjustified criticism are not welcome. The seminar moderators reserve the right to intervene if they feel that these basic principles are not being adhered to.


DOUBLE FEATURES are organized with the gracious help of the following postdoctoral fellows:

Malte Buschmann (Michigan)

Rodolfo Capdevilla (Perimeter/Toronto)

Hongwan Liu (Princeton/NYU)

Oren Slone (Princeton/NYU)
