Astrophysics Group Meetings and Seminars


Every Thursday afternoon, the Astrophysics Group meets for seminars.

The time allocated to speakers for their presentations is 45 minutes (plus 15 minutes for questions). Seminars begin at 2.30pm unless stated otherwise.
The seminar is preceded by lunch at a local pub and is followed by coffee and biscuits.

Ellis Owen and Myrto Symeonidis are the seminar organisers. If you have any comments or if you would like to visit MSSL and give a seminar, please drop Ellis or Myrto a line.
