Day 2:

"Scientific and societal Colloquium"

Welcome to the EPS Scientific Colloquium and to our Societal Round Tables!

A particularity of the EPS Forum is to offer, within the same event, the possibility of not only promoting our young researchers to our industrial partners, but also of presenting them the latest achievements in physics by the most renowned experts in the selected disciplines. These are the same as those discussed over Day 1, but addressed from a more fundamental point of view on Day 2.

Day 2 will propose a series of conferences and round tables on the main themes:
- Energy and sustainability
- Accelerators, high-energy particle physics, nuclear physics
- Quantum technologies and photonics
- Machine learning and artificial intelligence
- Biophysics, technological sequencing of biomolecules and human health
- Condensed matter physics: from quantum materials to additive manufacturing
addressed by outstanding personalities selected by the Programme Committee and the concerned EPS Divisions and Groups.

Plenary lectures

We shall have the pleasure to welcome the following Nobel Laureates
