Go to current week.


There is a Station Q seminar weekly at 2:15pm in Elings Hall 2250 (directly north of KITP,) for which they have a calendar.
Leon Balents holds group meetings on Fridays at 1PM.
There is a Google calendar called UCSB Condensed Matter listing condensed matter seminars. (Google calendars' help.)
