Due to new guidance regarding on-campus meetings and events from the Provost Office and Yale Health regarding the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19),  the organization committee decided to skip the 2020 edition of the Yale Science and Engineering Forum.
YSEF 2019: Thursday, May 2

The Yale Science and Engineering Forum is a diverse program of talks highlighting the outstanding science and engineering research being performed by your colleagues at Yale.  

Please  plan  to  join  your  colleagues  for  our annual  day  of scientific presentations and discussion by selected members of the biological, engineering, physical and life science faculties on Thursday, May 2, 2019 at the Yale Quantum Institute.

This is a great opportunity to hear about important work outside your own specialty, presented at an accessible level.  
Contact Florian Carle, YQI Manager at yqi@yale.edu with your questions.
