Fourth AstroSem session: 05.06.23

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 afterward, based on a recently published research paper, as suggested by the supervisors. Students should discuss the topic, the content, and the presentation with their supervisor before giving it.

If you are having trouble finding a topic this semester please email Angie Veronica before the registration deadline to help you resolve this. 

Time and Place
Mondays, 14.00 ---> 15.30, Lecture Hall 0.012, AIfA.

The AstroSem introductory session will be on Monday the 17th of April 2023 at 14.00. The talks cannot be scheduled before the de-registration date (24.04.2023). The latest date available for scheduling a talk this semester is 10.07.2023. Please note: exceptionally want to stay at a different time and/or place, please check the timetable below!
