INTRODUCTION SEMINAR on MONDAY APRIL 9th (see schedule below)
Information for the SUMMER semester 2018
Welcome to the homepage of the Seminar on Astronomy and Astrophysics (astro830), a four credit point elective course in the Master of Astrophysics programme at the Argelander Institute for Astronomy, at the University of Bonn. Students give a talk, and answer relevant questions afterwards, based on a recently published research paper, as suggested by the supervisors. Students should discuss the topic, the content and the presentation of their talk with their supervisor prior to giving it.
Time and Place
Mondays, 14.15 ---> 15.45, Lecture Hall 0.012, AIfA.
The AstroSem introductory session will be on Monday the 9th of April 2018 at 14.00. The final AstroSem will be (TBD). Please note: exceptionally seminars will be held at a different time and/or place, please check the timetable below!
