Physics Graduate Student Symposium

About PGSS

The Physics Graduate Student Symposium (PGSS) is a weekly summer seminar series hosted by the University of Michigan Physics Department, showcasing the excellent research being done on campus.

PGSS provides an excellent opportunity for graduate students to share their research and to practice their presentation skills. To enhance that benefit, this website provides a means for audience members to give anonymous feedback to presenters regarding their research and their presentations.

Talks will be given each Thursday and will be 40 minutes in length, with time after for questions. Lunch will be served at 11:40 and talks will begin at 12:00. The venue for the seminars is East Hall 1324 (the seminars on May 16 and May 23 are in West Hall 340).

If you have any questions or comments regarding PGSS, please feel free to contact the PGSS team via the feedback page.

Everyone is welcome! Help support great research at Michigan!
