INTRODUCTION SEMINAR on MONDAY April 1st (see schedule below)
Information for the Summer semester 2019
Welcome to the homepage of the Seminar on Astronomy and Astrophysics (astro830), a four credit point elective course in the Master of Astrophysics program 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 supervisor prior to giving it.
If you are having trouble finding a topic this semester please email Aarti Nagarajan before the registration deadline to help you resolve this. In rare cases, a third talk may be scheduled on the same Monday due to the limited slots available.
Time and Place
Mondays, 14.00 ---> 15.30, Lecture Hall 0.012, AIfA.
The AstroSem introductory session will be on Monday the 1st of April 2019 at 14.00. The talks cannot be scheduled before the de-registration date (28th April). The latest date available for scheduling a talk this semester is 8th July 2019. Please note: exceptionally want to stay at a different time and / or place, please check the timetable below!
