ChatPhysics Live 2021

Hello and welcome to ChatPhysics Live 2021!

We understand that not everyone is able to access live professional development opportunities, and so our speakers have kindly prerecorded their videos so you can watch them and discuss them at a time that is convenient to you. We have 24 videos to share with you across 5 themed days, 3 live panel discussions, plus a special keynote from Jim Al-Khalili.

We would love for you to continue the discussion with all of the speakers on Twitter, using the #ChatPhysicsLive hashtag.

Meet the team behind the conference here.

Read our speaker bios here.

Thank you and enjoy the conference!
