Chalk Talks

About four times a year we hold Chalk Talks for the Friends of the KITP. These special events are preceded by a light meal and refreshments and then move into our intimate Auditorium where you will hear from a leading scientist about their research. The hallmark of these talks is informality, with questions encouraged during the talk, and, of course after as well. Please join the Friends so that you can enjoy these special events.
