Aim of the talk series

The Galaxy Evolution Seminars take place once a week, currently Thursdays at 11:30 in the Beecroft Room of the Denys Wilkinson Building. They aim to foster exchange amongst local people interested in galaxy evolution at both low and high redshift. As opposed to the colloquia, which are held in the main auditorium for the whole department, these talks are rather informal, with a subgroup of expert people in a smaller room. Introductory material and reviews are welcome, but the talks are also a good place to present ongoing or controversial results and receive feedback. As such, the talks should typically contain 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 travel and accomodation of outside speakers.

Michele Cappellari, Ryan Houghton Aprajita Verma and Stephen Wilkins
