Zurich Undergraduate Colloquium
in Computational science, Mathematics And Physics

ZUCCMAP is looking for someone to co-organize the seminar next semester (HS 2023) !
If you might be interested, please send me an email at tvignon@student.ethz.ch.

ZUCCMAP takes place this spring every Thursday from 12:15 to 13:00 in HG G 5, with every talk followed by an apéro!
If you want to give a talk, please email pbordereau@student.ethz.ch or tvignon@student.ethz.ch.

What is ZUCCMAP?

We run a weekly colloquium where students present topics from diverse areas in mathematics and physics.

The talks are followed by an Apéro, giving you the chance to mingle in informal atmosphere over some delicious food!

All talks are aimed at undergraduate students (from the first semester on!), so don’t let the titles scare you! Who knows, maybe you’ll find a topic for your Bachelor’s thesis or other independent work!

Give a Talk

Giving talks is a critical part of any scientist's career and so presenting to a group of fellow students in a familiar environment, is an easy way to get started. If you’re interested in giving a talk, contact pbordereau@student.ethz.ch or tvignon@student.ethz.ch.

(Note: You do not need to be an undergraduate to give a talk.)

Past Talks

You can find recordings of most of our talks on the ETH Video Portal and on YouTube.


We thank the VMP for their support. Also, we would like to thank the IT Services, the Maths Department, and the FIM, for all the exceptions they made for us. ;)


ZUCCMAP was initiated in autumn 2020 by Alexander Uhlmann, Jinghao Cao, and Silvio Barandun. It was reborn in spring 2022 by Johann Birnick and Siddharth Setlur and in autumn 2022 it was organised by Alessandra Iacopino and Ana Pavlaković.
