To the second years: giving a talk is close to mandatory. Would you not give a talk, expect me over breakfast, lunch and dinner tables. Expect me in your classrooms, in your daydreams, night dreams and in your nightmares. There's no escaping fate now that it has set its eyes on you. You can't run. It's futile. So be a good student and give a talk >=D

## Al-Eryani, Aiman Abdulrahman

I want to clarify for the new members that this only holds for the

Physics majorssecond years. So if you're not a physics student, you needn't worry about me bothering you (I can't really enforce "mandatory" after all) at some point. If you're not a physics major, but you'd still like to give a talk, you're more than welcome! Just add yourself to the list.## Al-Eryani, Aiman Abdulrahman

I found a very nice page on wikipedia that lists open problems in physics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unsolved_problems_in_physics

Talks introducing any of these (or even multiple at once) also work and would be quite interesting.

Hi everyone

Can someone please tell me where are these talks presented?

My major is Physics, I am a Freshman and I plan on finishing my masters on astrophysics so I was interested in "Introduction to Cosmology" talk.

## Deng, Yiping

I think Aiman will send out the e-mail to the mailing list before the event to inform you about the place/time for the talk. No worries:)

## Al-Eryani, Aiman Abdulrahman

Nice! Do you mean that you wish to present the talk yourself, or that you'd like to attend it? The talk is still in the suggestions list, and is one that can be presented in many levels of detail. But if people would like to hear on it soon, I can present on it myself =). It's a very interesting topic, but there's an issue that it might be better to have some familiarity with General Relativity first to get to a satisfactory level of detail.

If you want to do it, then just move it to the "in progress" list and tag it with your name. Otherwise, let me know, and I will see what I can do.

But yes, the next Friday's meeting will be introductory, and there will be a couple of shorter talks about internships done during the summer by some of the students. The next, there will be Yiping (hopefully =D) doing a workshop on Latex. Then we will see we can see if the talk on cosmology can be done afterwards.
