The formal colloquium of the Institute of Physics, Polish Academy of
Sciences it the main ongoing periodic series of lectures in physics and
related science, of interest to members of the Institute. It is held from
1977. Colloquium speakers are primarily domestic and foreign scholars of
established reputation, but also less-known physicists with remarkable and
current scientific achievements. The colloquium is held once a month from
September to June, usually at 3:15 PM on the last Tuesday of the month in
the Auditorium of the Institute of Physics. Colloquia are open to the
public, and are preceded by a coffee/the reception at the Institute.
For future information about the colloquia, pleace contact Prof. Dr. hab. Leszek Sirko
(firstname.lastname@example.org), current chairman of the colloquium committee.
NOTICE OF NEXT COLLOQUIUM
We are pleased to announce that on April 16th 2019 (Tuesday)
at 15:15 in the Institute of Physics, in the L. Sosnowski's auditorium
will be held colloquium of the Institute of Physics PAS, in which:
Prof. Leszek Roszkowski
from Astrocent, Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Centre and National Centre for Nuclear Research,
will give a lecture entitled:
The dark matter dilemma and how to resolve it
We cordially invite to attend the colloquium and please to inform other interested persons.
Before the colloquium, at 14:45, participants are welcome for coffee, tea and biscuits.
Dark matter is the second largest component of the mass-energy
balance of the Universe. Despite the wealth of observational evidence
in support of its existence, the identity of dark matter remains unknown.
In my talk I will first briefly present what is known about the properties
of dark matter. Next, I will discuss some more popular ideas for the nature
of dark matter in terms of particle physics, as well as the experimental
effort to detect the elusive dark matter particle.
