Gulliver seminars take place on Mondays at 11:30 AM in the F304 room, and typically last one hour including questions. The seminars are in English, and the scientific topics are mainly those studied in the laboratory.

  • Gulliver Seminar : Laura Rodriguez Arriaga (Universidad Autonoma de Madrid)
    Lundi 16 janvier de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Rolling vesicles to model cell motion
    Vesicles, aqueous droplets stabilized by amphiphilic membranes, are largely used as models of biological membranes and as drug carriers. Their utility, however, depends critically on the degree of control achieved on vesicle properties in the fabrication process. In this talk, I will discuss the adequacy of (...)
  • Gulliver Seminar : Yann Chalopin (Centrale-Supelec)
    Lundi 23 janvier de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Localisation of thermal energy, Topological disorder and the art of regulation in biochemistry
    This seminar proposes to address an atomic mechanism describing how part of the regulation of biochemistry emerges in proteins and protein assemblies. A physical description linking the topology of macromolecular complexes to their biochemical function will be exposed through dynamic effects arising from (...)
  • Gulliver Seminar : Léonie Canet (Université Grenoble Alpes)
    Lundi 30 janvier de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Kardar-Parisi-Zhang universality in exciton-polariton condensates
    Since the seminal paper by Kardar, Parisi and Zhang (KPZ) in 1986 on kinetic roughening of classical growing interfaces, the KPZ equation has arisen as a fundamental model in statistical physics for non-equilibrium scaling phenomena and phase transitions. Unexpectedly, it still unfolds new branching, such as a (...)

General recommendations for the speakers

The audience is often heterogeneous - because of the wide range of scientific topics covered in the lab - so planning a talk for a broader audience would be preferred. The seminar is in English, and speakers are thus invited to prepare their slides in English.

The seminar starts at 11:30 AM. The speaker is asked to arrive in the lab at least 15 minutes in advance to set up their computer. The talks last typically 45 minutes, and are followed by a discussion time.
