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 : Michel Fruchart (Gulliver, ESPCI)
    Lundi 13 mars de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    Non-reciprocal phase transitions
    Out of equilibrium, a lack of reciprocity is the rule rather than the exception. Non-reciprocity occurs, for instance, in active matter, non-equilibrium systems, networks of neurons, social groups with conformist and contrarian members, directional interface growth phenomena and metamaterials. Although wave (...)
  • Gulliver Seminar : Jean-Loup Faulon (INRAE)
    Lundi 20 mars de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
    In vitro and in vivo neural computations with metabolism
    Engineering information processing devices in living systems is a long-standing venture of synthetic biology. Yet, the problem of engineering devices that perform basic operations found in machine learning remains largely unexplored. I will first present the in vitro (cell-free) engineering of enzyme catalyzed (...)
  • Gulliver Seminar : Yann Chalopin (Centrale-Supélec)
    Lundi 27 mars 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 : Jörg Baschnagel (Institut Charles Sadron)
    Lundi 15 mai de 11h30 à 12h30 - Bibliothèque PCT - F3.04
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.
