Dear Friends and colleagues

Due to the pandemic, this year's department seminar will take place via Zoom. We have taken advantage of the situation and invited an excellent roster of speakers worldwide (Israel included). Due to time zone differences, some talks are scheduled for the afternoon, so please check the exact time before each seminar. yy

During the seminar, we kindly ask you to leave your camera open and stay muted throughout the talk. Questions can be asked at the end of the 45-minute talk or through the chat. We wish you all a fruitful and innovative academic year. yy

Looking forward to seeing you all
