Galaxy Evolution Discussion Group

University of Oxford

The Galaxy Evolution Discussion Group talks take place once a week, currently Thursdays at 11:00 in the Beecroft Room of the Denys Wilkinson Building. They aim to foster exchange amongst local people interested in galaxy evolution, primarily but not exclusively through studies of nearby galaxies. As such, the talks should typically contain 30-40 minutes of material, but they are scheduled for an hour to allow plenty of interaction, questions, and discussion.

We are always on the look-out for new people, so if you would like to talk do not hesitate to contact us. We do have a small budget to support outside speakers.

Martin Bureau and John Magorrian
