3. Delta ITP Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics ATTPI (spring 2019)
This spring's Delta ITP Course Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics aimed at advanced Master’s students, PhD and postdoctoral researchers, is built around the general theme of Hydrodynamics and collective dynamics.
Lectures will take place on Mondays at 11:15-13:00, followed by a study/exercise session 13:45- end.
The location of this semester's course rotates between the three institutes. The first module will be held in Amsterdam, the second in Leiden and the third in Utrecht.
The course will be divided into three 5-week modules; for each one there are four lectures (2hrs each) and four exercise sessions (4hrs each). At the end of the module there is an exam. All exams will be greaded with a pass or fail. You need to pass all three exams to receive credit for the course.

8. Grants/awards
(RU/IMAPP)
Melissa van Beekveld, een van de winnaars Mohrmann Stipendium
Tien vrouwelijke promovendi van de Radboud Universiteit ontvingen dinsdag 11 december 2018 een Christine Mohrmann Stipendium. Doel van het stipendium is de onderzoeksters aan te moedigen hun
wetenschappelijke loopbaan na de voltooiing van hun proefschrift voort te zetten. Het stipendium stelt hen in de gelegenheid een periode door te brengen aan een andere,
bij voorkeur buitenlandse, universiteit. De stipendia bedragen 5000 euro per persoon.

9. National seminars
* Mark Kac: http://www.win.tue.nl/markkac/
Speakers, titles, abstracts and locations will be published on our website as they become known, and announced by e-mail one week ahead of each seminar.
The Mark Kac seminar is supported by FOM (http://www.fom.nl/live/english/home.pag) and is an activity of the STAR stochastics cluster (http://www.eurandom.nl/STAR/).

* International Center for Workshops in the Sciences: http://www.lorentzcenter.nl
Anyone engaged in scientific research, anywhere in the world, can propose a workshop. In fact, the Center welcomes diversity of background and nationality in submissions.
We have two venues in Leiden, dedicated to groups of different sizes: The Lorentz Center@Oort for groups of up to 55 participants and the Lorentz Center@Snellius for smaller groups of up to 25 participants.
For detailed guidelines and advice, see the Lorentz Center website.
