spring-2019

12:40 - 1:30 PM every Thursday, location = 131 A & B Campbell Hall.
  • To volunteer for a 12 minute talk + 4 minutes for questions, send email to Paul Kalas (kalas@berkeley.edu).  
  • This forum is mainly for local scientists of any level to present their work to a broad spectrum of the department, and usually includes one short talk by the astronomy colloquium speaker of the day.  
  • Subjects can include personal scientific research, reporting on other work appearing in journals, education and public outreach efforts, science policy, and professional development issues.
  • It is preferred if speakers bring their own laptop, cable adapter, and pointer.  Presentations may also use the whiteboard.
  • Scientists from other institutions need to have a local scientist hosting their visit to Berkeley before they can request a talk slot.
