Steward / NOAO Galaxy Group


Galaxy Group brings together people at Steward and NOAO broadly interested in galaxies, from galactic structure to extragalactic astronomy to cosmology. Talks about any aspect of interest to this audience are welcome. If you are in Tucson or visiting and interested in giving a talk email Ben Weiner, bjw@as.arizona.edu to inquire. We meet on alternate Mondays at 12:00pm in N305, taking turns with Origins Seminar/Planet/Star Formation Group. Talks in the off weeks can sometimes be scheduled with advance notice. The aim is to provide a low key environment for people to discuss work in progress. We can have one or two speakers, and talks should be 20 minutes long to allow time for questions during and after the talk. Speakers are strongly urged to present work in a less formal manner to encourage more discussion and interaction with the audience. Work in progress and talks that have a list of open questions are encouraged, as are reports from conferences, etc.

We are requesting speakers to limit their talks to 5 slides as part of this informal arrangement.
