reminders - please subscribe to to receive reminders - (anyone can send a reminder to this list if Boud forgets...)


Purpose: stimulate discussion and understanding each other's cosmo/extragal research, but also include astronomers/students not directly involved in cosmo research projects, in order to encourage general information flow.



  • very short talks, maximum 5 minutes, explained in a simple way, related to cosmology/extragalactic astronomy in some way, e.g.
    • your own research
    • an astro-ph article
    • a printed journal article
    • a cosmology announcement in the govt/corporate media
    • a web site about cosmology
    • software you think is useful
    • something else - use your imagination!

  • in each case hopefully followed by questions, discussion

  • język/language: wyb?r wolny/free choice

  • the list of topics may be decided "on the spot", or people with
a zwicky login may add to the agenda beforehand at:


  • having very short talks encourages
    • a variety of speakers
    • possible cross-fertilisation of randomly chosen ideas
    • more likely to concentrate on questions and discussion
    • people won't get bored
    • more likely to have spontaneous ideas
    • practice in going straight to a key idea and explaining it in simple words

  • the time limit of one hour means that people know this won't take up
their whole day; those people more interested, and with more time, can hang around for the research meeting.



This should be of interest to all TCfA staff and astronomy students, though there will probably be a core group mostly of cosmo/extragal people.
