Spring Semester (January-April) 1996

MSU Physics & Astronomy Colloquia are held in the main lecture hall (Room 118) of the Physics-Astronomy Building on the Michigan State University campus at 4:10 pm on Tuesdays of Fall and Spring Semesters.

Refreshments are available in the lounge outside Room 224 at 3:45 pm.

Persons listed as "Host" may be contacted to arrange for meetings with non-local speakers (once their travel arrangements and schedules have been finalized). The Spring 1996 Colloquium Organizer is Martin Berz, and the information contact person is Lorie Neuman.

Special accommodations may be requested by calling the Physics & Astronomy Department at (517) 353-5180 two weeks in advance to ensure sufficient time to make arrangements. Requests received with less notice will be met when possible.
