QSQM Activities

Seminars and Activities at EFRC QSQM

Research Symposia

The Research Symposium includes two short talks by investigators followed by discussion among members of the EFRC, and broader audience. It is held every month in a hybrid mode with audience present in rooms, both at UIUC and SLAC. 

The goal of research symposia is to stimulate synergy across the thrusts with speakers highlighting progress in materials and instrumentation. The discussion fosters collaboration among EFRC members.

Junior Research Hour 

The Junior Research Hour is a biweekly gathering with in person meetings at UIUC and Stanford. These events serve as a forum for informal research discussion between students and postdocs working in the EFRC-QSQM. Each session includes two short talks from members of QSQM research groups, followed by an open discussion. The talks can be either technical, describing the specifics of research of interest to the broader QSQM audience, or “journal club” like, where the speakers introduce ideas that might be of general interest to the community. 

In the past, QSQM Junior Hour has included a few career talks with invited speakers from academia, industry, and national labs.
