Supported by the Office of the Provost, the Interdisciplinary Colloquium (IDC) is a series of events designed to foster the STEM research environment at NYU Shanghai and interdisciplinary collaboration within and cross-institutions. For each event, we invite a distinguished guest speaker to talk about cutting edge science not only for people in their specialty area but also people in other research areas. The speaker meets with our faculty, PhD students, and postdocs, and gives a one-hour lecture open to all.
The next IDC series is expected to take place in late February 2024. Stay tuned for further updates.
The IDC organizing committee is composed of faculty, staff and doctoral students from a variety of research fields/interests who volunteer to help plan and organize the IDC events. They are responsible for event planning, deciding event dates and speakers.
