15 January 2018: Kickoff of the Feynman Year 2018 - Feynman Total

Richard P. Feynman was born on 11 May 1918. This new year 2018 would be his centenary, and to commemorate it, EspaiNANO, the group from the Catalan Association fos Scientific Communication for the Communication and Outreach of Nanotechnology, has organized a variety of activities and events. ICMAB also collaborates in the organization of this celebration, called FeynmanTotal

Jan 11, 2018

The first event of this celebration will be on Monday 15 January, at 7 pm, with the talk on "Feynman: Nobel, bongos and topless" by Claudi Mans, which will be held at the Biblioteca Vila de Gràcia. This will be the first of a series of 8 talks that will take place in different libraries of Barcelona, within the cycle "Visions de Ciència: Feynman i l'evolució de la ciència al segle XX". The full program, which includes sessions from Xavier Giménez, Guillermo Orts-Gil, Daniel Arbós, Víctor F. Puntes, Toni Pou, Jordi Díaz, and Xavier Roqué is found here

The central activity will take place on 11 May 2018, the day of Feynman's birthday, with a seminar from Prof. David Kaiser, American physicist and historian of science specialist in Feynman. On 9 May 2018, Prof. Keiser will also give a talk at Campus UAB. Moreover, a series of Feynman Talks will be organized with some research centers ans institutions of the UAB Campus (ICMAB, CNM, ICN2, IFAE) and the ALBA Synchrotron. 


EspaiNANO presented the Feynman Year at the Ateneu Barcelonès on 28 November 2017. The presentation included a talk from Toni Pou, a humorous video from Jordi Notó, and a roundtable moderated by ICMAB's Communication & Outreach Officer, Anna May, and which included Àngela Garcia (eduxarxa), Claudi Mans (UB), Joan Mendoza (UB), Víctor Puntes (ICN2-VHIR) and Pau Senra (kdV). The roundtable was followed by the presentation of the activities for 2018, by Yolanda Fernández and Mara Carmona, including talks, contests, exhibitions and much more. You can see the full event in this video:

 In collaboration with the Catalan Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SCN2), a website for the Feynman year is being created, and you will be able to find all the activities there, in addition to news of the events: http://feynmantotal.cat/ 

We hope you enjoy Feynman Year 2018 and that you can participate in some of the activities!

    The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).
