Physics colloquia at PUCP
Nearly five years ago, in 2011, while I was still a Master's student at PUCP
in Lima, I started the weekly Physics colloquia. Since then, I have
continued to organize them, usually from abroad, which has included
selecting and contacting the speakers, managing the talk schedule for
each semester, and coordinating the advertising, both in print, and
online, via e-mail and social media. All talks are webcast live and
To date (July 2015), we have successfully organized more than 130 talks
over nine semesters, with speakers from PUCP, other universities and
research institutes in Perú, and from abroad.
The colloquia have become a referential scientific event in the Physics community of Perú.
