The DRSTP PhD Student Council is organizing a meeting focused on the younger researchers in the Research School. On this 10th edition of the PhD Day you will hear inspiring talks from PhD students in several areas of theoretical physics and beyond. Just like previous editions, the PhD Day is also the right moment to meet old friends and make new ones, to share the joys and pains of being a scientist. Also for Master's students the PhD Day is a great opportunity to meet PhD students from all over the Netherlands and find out about research at other universities. week 43  2017 Monday, 23 October 2017 DELTA ITP ADVANCED TOPICS IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS II (FALL 2017) NONEQUILIBRIUM QUANTUM FIELD THEORY This fall'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 "Nonequilibrium quantum field theory".

The lectures will be based on Mussardo's book "Statistical Field Theory", of which we have a copy in the library of the ITP. Note that even though the title is identical to our obligatory course, the topics are actually quite different, covering in particular conformal field theory and integrable systems. The first lecture on September 13th will be given by Tatjana Puskarov. From November 1st the lectures will be given by the Kramers professor Giuseppe Mussardo (SISSA, Trieste). The lectures and exercise classes take place every Wednesday, 9am to 11am, and 11am to 1pm, respectively. Both will be held in BBG 7.12 Best, Dirk Schuricht Thursday, 26 October 2017 Cosmology Journal Club Speaker: tba Time & Place: 12h0013h30 in BBG 7.12 Title: tba Friday, 27 October 2017 BEC Meeting Time & Place: 15h0016h00 in BBG 7.12 week 44  2017 Monday, 30 October 2017 DELTA ITP ADVANCED TOPICS IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS II (FALL 2017) NONEQUILIBRIUM QUANTUM FIELD THEORY This fall'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 "Nonequilibrium quantum field theory".

The schedule will start on Thursday afternoon and will feature a joint dinner at the site, and end on Friday afternoon. To spend the night in Woerden, which is highly recommended, rooms have been blocked in nearby hotels for your convience. As strongly suggested by the midterm review we intend this Delta ITP retreat to be informative, stimulating, festive and further supporting and strengthening the Delta ITP community. We aim to provide a diverse program of interest to all Delta ITP members, as well as our (industrial) partners. This includes scientific talks in the spirit of the triangle meetings, more educational and interactive sessions, strategic discussions on the future of Delta ITP, as well as some keynote lectures. We would like to ask all Delta ITP members to make a strong effort to join us on 2 and 3 November 2017. Please register using the link on our website. More information will become available in due time. Kind regards, Jan Pieter van der Schaar * Delta ITP will bear all costs for the full retreat, as well as the overnight accommodation. For all staff on Delta ITP budget this might result in a small decrease in their overall (travel) budgets.
