CTIO  >  AURA Colloquium Series


Want to give a science talk in La Serena?

The AURA Observatories in Chile – CTIO, Gemini, and SOAR – sponsor a colloquium series on any aspect of astronomy science. The staff would very much like to hear about your work. Our talks are generally scheduled at 4:00pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday.  If because of travel and observing constraints, those times don't work for you, we can schedule your talk a time that is convenient for you Monday to Friday.  We offer lodging and meals for our speakers.  We would also like to post a copy of your talk in .PDF format on our web page, if you agree.

We invite everybody from the La Serena astronomical community – AURA, University of La Serena, Las Campanas, and ESO Observatories – to attend. We can also schedule IP transmission of our talks held in the AURA conference room to external sites around the world.

If you are interested, please contact  us at colloquia-contact@ctio.noao.edu.

In addition to our colloquium series, the combined AURA scientific staff have a staff tea every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:00 am (except on days of colloquium) in the Olin G. Eggen Library.  We encourage visitors to join us, to discuss any informal science, engineering, or technical topics they would like to present.  Our staff teas are well known to be lively and at times controversial!

Finally, we offer a separate AURA Technical Talk series for visitors who would like to give a talk on any technical aspects of astronomy – instrument development, software design, engineering, site surveys, and the like. Please contact Brooke Gregory (bgregory@noao.edu)
