Astrophysics Group Meetings and Seminars

March – August 2006

On Tuesday afternoons in the Library, the Astrophysics Group meets for seminars (internal and external) and to discuss topics from general astronomy to group matters. These get-togethers are specifically meant to be very informal. They are intended to promote the free exchange of ideas between members of the group and others.

Speakers normally give presentations of up to an hour (including time for questions) and these will begin at 3pm unless stated otherwise.

In charge for the period 01st March to 31st August 2006 are Roberto Mignani and Rebecca Smith.
