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.
