Colloquium 2013

2010 | 2011 | 20122013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017

Please suggest colloquium speakers and encourage your visitors to give talks. The talks should be diversified, covering all research topics within NAOC. The talks should be aimed at the general audience, allowing generous introductions (15 minutes) so that other people not in the same field can follow (to some extent).

To keep the colloquium series on a weekly basis, the speakers are better to be nominated about one month in advance.

Primary contacts:  Weimin Yuan (wmy@nao.cas.cn, Jan-Mar), Mei Zhang (zhangmei@bao.ac.cn, Apr-Jun), Licai Deng (licai@bao.ac.cn, Jul -Sep), Xuelei Chen (xuelei@cosmology.bao.ac.cn, Oct -Dec), Shude Mao (smao@nao.cas.cn).
