External Seminars (Visiting Speakers)

Regarding invited speakers, the research secretary assigned to each professor will handle the visitor’s travel arrangements (visitors should purchase their own flight) and the visit schedule. Duty distribution varies in the case of student hosted seminars.

To schedule a date, contact the secretary in charge of the discipline’s slot to find out which dates are available. As soon as a date has been determined, information should be sent to chemsem@indiana.edu and submitted to the Chemistry Events online calendar.

Each discipline should invite no more than 12 speakers each school year.

The Colloquium Committee should be consulted before scheduling a Distinguished seminar, and coordination should be shared with the Chair’s Office.

For all Distinguished/Wednesday Seminars in C122: An ITG rep will set up the AV needs. The Business Office must be informed by the host (or his/her research secretary) of the specific AV needs to ensure that set-up will go smoothly.
