The CoQuS colloquium is the weekly event where students and faculty meet to learn from- and exchange with international scientifc visitors with a focus on modern aspects of quantum physics and 3-4 times per semester on general physics.
Each colloquium given by an international guest speaker is preceded by a talk given by a CoQuS student, who presents his/her research projec tin 20 minutes. The CoQuS colloquium starts with a get-together which gives both students and faculty the opportunity to network with external scientists and their fellow CoQuS colleagues.
The student talks are recorded on tape in order to view at a later point together with the CoQuS soft skill trainer. The students' presentation techniques are being analysed and advice is given on how to improve their techniques.
Some of the CoQuS Colloquium speakers are speakers at the Vienna Physics Colloquium, an inter-faculty Colloquium of the University of Vienna an TU Wien. In these few cases, no student talks are held.
