Astro seminar

Fall 2005

The astro seminar is a platform for all researchers in Astrophysics, i.e. grad students, PHD students, instructors, postdocs, professors [did I forget anybody?], to present their work or (as in a journal club) a paper they find interesting.



The seminar starts at 12.00.
Time slots are 30 minutes for the talk, plus 15 minutes for questions and discussion.
Please send me the title of your talk, together with a useful reference (if applicable) at least 8 days ahead of your talk, so I can properly announce it.
