4) 12:30 – 13:45 Lectures (hybrid mode)

– Place: Rzewuski Hall, Institute of Physics UWr, pl. Maxa Borna 9, 50-204 Wrocław
– Programme: five short lectures presenting selected research topics dealt with by scientists from the Institute of Theoretical Physics (IFT), the Institute of Experimental Physics (IFD) and the Institute of Astronomy (IA).

  1. The lecture entitled “Can Physics Predict Stock Market Crashes?” in which Prof. Dariusz Grech (IFT) will justify that the methods and laws of physics of complex systems are not only ubiquitous, but also have an interdisciplinary character, which makes it possible to apply them even to predict the so-called extreme events on the stock exchange and currency exchanges. The audience will see that behind seemingly distant cognitive structures may hide identical codes of quantitative description and understanding of various phenomena – seemingly only distant from physics.
  2. A lecture entitled “Big Data in astronomy” in which mgr inż. Tomasz Różański will show how huge sets of observational data, so-called Big Data, and machine learning are used in astrophysical research.
  3. Lecture entitled “How to deal with rust? A few words about iron alloys”, in which mgr Magdalena Sobota (IFD) will explain the scientific approach to the well-known fact that objects made of iron rust as a result of contact with water and air. The annual cost of fighting corrosion is estimated at $2.2 trillion! That kind of money could buy 17 million Tesla Model X SUVs, film 3.5 thousand Hobbit trilogies or buy 3 million flats in Wrocław’s Sky Tower. The audience will also learn about the search for new materials with interesting anti-corrosion properties.
  4. The lecture entitled “Multicomponent metal alloys and their surprising properties”, in which mgr Piotr Sobota (IFD) will talk about extremely hard, strong and corrosion-resistant alloys – this is how the family of multicomponent high entropy alloys (HEA) can be briefly described. These alloys are an intensively researched group of advanced materials with many potential applications in high-tech science and engineering. The audience will learn about their design, derivation and investigation of many sometimes unexpected properties, including superconductivity and magnetism
  5. A lecture entitled “Computer Simulations” in which prof. dr hab. Maciej Matyka (IFT) will interest the audience with the hypothesis that the world and life can be a simulation. However, we will not take up this topic, instead we will try to understand what simulations are and how they are created (programmed). On the example of several simulations, prof. Matyka will show what we do at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, what phenomena we can simulate, why we do it and why we sometimes use GPUs. The audience will learn what students of computer physics and applied computer science and measurement systems can learn about this topic. The lecture will include examples of simulations in the form of videos and interactive programmes.

5) 13:45 – 14:15 Question and answer session (hybrid mode)

– Place: Rzewuski Hall, Institute of Physics UWr, pl. Maxa Borna 9, 50-204 Wrocław
– Programme: this session will answer all your questions about studying at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy
– Tutors: Representatives of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, Institutes forming the Faculty and the Faculty Recruitment Committee

6) 14:15 – 15:00 Tour of the Institute of Experimental Physics and the Institute of Theoretical Physics (stationary)

– Place: Rzewuski Hall, Institute of Physics UWr, pl. Maxa Borna 9, 50-204 Wrocław

– Leaders: dr Tomasz Greczyło (Institute of Experimental Physics) and dr Jakub Jankowski (Institute of Theoretical Physics)

14 MAY – INSTITUTE OF MUSICOLOGY

Online between 11.00-13.00 in the form of a music journalism workshop run by PhD students of the Institute of Musicology of the University of Wrocław.

The programme of the event will include an introduction illustrated with musical examples prepared by the presenters, as well as workshops on creating short texts (descriptions, reviews, reports) on various genres of music – ancient, contemporary, classical, popular, film and traditional. The workshop will also be a great opportunity to get to know the specifics and programme of musicological studies of the first and second degree conducted at our Institute, therefore we cordially invite all persons interested in our studies!

We offer a choice of three themes:

  1. What’s happening in computer games and films? Description of the music-picture relation– Moderators Karolina A. Pawłowska and Jakub Kopaniecki

The soundtrack is much more than just background. During the workshop you will learn how important a role music plays in computer games and film. You will then analyse for yourself the relationship between music and image in chilling extracts from films about King Kong.

  1. Faces of ancient Iberian melodies. Comparison of vocal styles (with elements of practice)– Leader Julieta González-Springer and Ryszard Lubieniecki

In the history of music, there are songs whose popularity does not diminish over time. The oldest songs from the region of present-day Spain and Portugal inspire not only specialists and musicologists, but also amateurs and popular music creators. This workshop will look at different performances of one of the compositions preserved in the Red Book of Montserrat(Llibre Vermell de Montserrat): from historical performance to performances on contemporary instruments and using vocal techniques we usually associate with pop music. At the end, we will try to sing it together with those willing. They were, after all, pilgrims’ songs, intended for everyone.

  1. Limits of interpretation. Classical music performance– Leader Monika Pasiecznik and Szymon Atys

During the workshop we will try to prepare a review of an extraordinary concert by Marcin Masecki at the National Philharmonic. The pianist then performed the last three piano sonatas of Ludwig van Beethoven playing with noise-cancelling headphones on his ears. Was it the performer’s aim to experience music in a way close to Beethoven, who was already deaf when he wrote his late sonatas? We will therefore address the problems of the limits of interpretation (over-interpretation) in classical music performance and the historical contexts in which the musical repertoire functions.
