International large-scale experiments are playing an ever-increasing role in the advances in physics and astronomy. The past few years have seen Nobel Prizes from discoveries in physics experiments, including neutrino experiments in Japan and Canada that established that neutrinos have mass and oscillate, the discovery of the Higgs Boson in two...
On March 6th Scott Atran lectured at Uppsala University on the Battle of Kudilah, Pitfalls of Coalition Strategy Against ISIS.
On November 27 Takakki Kajita, PhD (University of Tokyo); Nobel Prize in Physics 2015, lectured at Uppsala University on his work in the Kamioka Nucleon Delay Experiment (Kamiokande).
On 15 November 2018 at Stockholm University, Tegmark lectured on Living in the Age of AI. Sponsored by Boston Consulting Group Gamma, this program was attended by 900 students, faculty and members of the general public.

My Random Walk Through the Wonderful World of Physics, from 1957 to 2017... and Counting!
On the 24th of May 2017 at Uppsala University Frank Wilczek (Professor of Physics at MIT and winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics 2004) spoke at the Department of Astronomy & Physics on the theme "time crystals".
The Program provided a multi-dimensional perspective on genocide by: (a) a Holocaust survivor, who can provided a personal, first hand account of persecution under Nazi rule (b) a social anthropologist who has done extensive field research in the Middle East and Asia, interviewing Al-Qaeda and Islamic State and other combatants and thus can provide...
From copper-oxide superconductors to rare-earth compounds, materials and quantum systems with strong correlations have focused enormous attention over several decades. Solid-state chemistry, new elaboration techniques and improved experimental probes are constantly providing us with examples of novel materials with surprising electronic properties....
On 19 January 2016, Harvard cognitive psychologist Elizabeth Spelke gave lectures and seminars at the departments of psychology at Uppsala University and Karolinska Institute, focusing on the origins of knowledge of number. She also gave a lecture at YBC gymnasium.
