why?

Purpose: stimulate discussion and understanding each other's cosmo/extragal research, but also include astronomers/students not directly involved in cosmo research projects, in order to encourage general information flow.

how?

Format:

  • very short talks, *maximum 5 minutes*, explained in a simple
way, related to cosmology/extragalactic astronomy in some way, e.g.

    • your own research

    • an astro-ph article

    • a printed journal article

    • a cosmology announcement in the govt/corporate media

    • a web site about cosmology

    • software you think is useful

    • something else - use your imagination!

  • in each case hopefully followed by questions, discussion

  • język/language: wyb?r wolny/free choice

  • the list of topics may be decided "on the spot", or people with
a zwicky login may add to the agenda beforehand at: http://adjani.astro.uni.torun.pl:9673/zwicky/CafePlusAgenda

Comments:

  • having very short talks encourages

    • a variety of speakers

    • possible cross-fertilisation of randomly chosen ideas

    • more likely to concentrate on questions and discussion

    • people won't get bored

    • more likely to have spontaneous ideas

    • practice in going straight to a key idea and explaining it in simple words

  • the time limit of one hour means that people know this won't take up
their whole day; those people more interested, and with more time, can hang around for the research meeting.

who?

Participation:

This should be of interest to all TCfA staff and astronomy students, though there will probably be a core group mostly of cosmo/extragal people.
