Wednesday Lunch Schedule
Schedule for 2018/2019  

Wednesday Lunches are held on Wednesdays in Kapteynborg room 161 at 12:45 pm and are intended to provide a flexible format for members and visitors of the Kapteyn Institute to discuss their research or any other astronomical subject of interest.

The length of the presentation should be approximately 20-25 minutes, allowing 5-10 minutes for additional questions. Short-term visitors to the institute may give longer (colloquium-length) talks, if requested. We have a dedicated presentation computer with a standard PDF viewer and PowerPoint. Speakers are also welcome to use their own laptops.

We prefer speakers to volunteer; for example, the Wednesday lunches are a good forum for presenting recent results (personal or otherwise) in an informal environment. If no visitors or volunteers are available, we will approach and invite members of the institute to give a presentation. We expect to only approach those that have not spoken at the institute within the last year or so. Speakers will be approached no later than two weeks before their proposed talk, except in extenuating circumstances.

The organizers of the Wednesday lunch are Laurent Legrand (office 151) and Suma Murthy (office 153) and Pavel Mancera (office 192). Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions, comments, suggestions, or to schedule a talk.

Organizers: Suma Murthy & Pavel Mancera & Laurent Legrand
