Colloquium 2014

2010 | 2011 | 20122013 | 2014 2015

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 at least one month in advance. If you have a suggested colloquium, please send the speaker bio and talk information to colloquium@nao.cas.cn. For other questions about the talk (e.g., format of the talk, subscription to the mailing-list), please contact Ms. Jie Ma (majie@nao.cas.cn).
