October Virtual Conferences

We are happy to announce six new October Conferences hosted by KITP. These Zoom events will convene scientists from around the world, enabling the sharing of exciting results while making new connections through vigorous discussions. These events were initiated by KITP postdocs in close collaboration with the international Physics community and represent a remarkable breadth of topics.
