This very popular series of 3-4 public lectures each year takes advantage of the presence of the many distinguished scientists who come to collaborate on the most fascinating and challenging questions in their fields.
Chalk Talks are held for the Friends of the KITP about four times per year. Preceded by a light meal and refreshments, the audience members then move into our intimate Simons Amphitheater where a leading scientist presents information about their research.
The KITP hosts an exciting, one-day Teachers' Conference each year, held in conjunction with an on-going program, designed to introduce high school science teachers to the latest discoveries and ideas.
Writer in Residence
The Writer-in-Residence program, jointly sponsored by the KITP and the Kavli Foundation, hosts science writers, editors and journalists at the KITP for up to five months each year.
Blackboard Talks serve to cross program boundaries. Given at the blackboard, speakers present the major science puzzles addressed by the program. Full of dialog and interruptions, these talks often serve as the best summary available of the physics frontiers.
The KITP Colloquia often serve to present unusual topics in physics or especially urgent breakthroughs that the KITP community needs to know about.
