Hello and welcome to MPIA's Planet and Star Formation Coffee!

PSF Coffee is held every Wednesday at 14:00 in MPIA's seminar room!

Go here for the Schedule

For volunteering to give a talk, please contact PSFCoffee@mpia.de.

The current organisers are Lucia Klarmann, Hendrik Linz, and Sümeyye Suri.


  • PSF Coffee is started by an informal part. Short contributions (<= 3 slides) are allowed during this part. Such short contributions may be pre-announced or spontaneous.
  • One talk per session is the default. Two talk slots are really reserved just for very exceptional circumstances.
  • Talks should not exceed ~20 minutes, leaving ample time for discussion.
  • Talks should focus on a single result or work in progress and not contain too many slides.
  • Discussion, also during talks, is strongly encouraged!
  • Total PSF coffee time is at maximum 60 minutes!
  • PSF Coffee never gets fully canceled, but in case of no announced talks, there will be no coffee provided...
  • If you drink coffee or eat cookies and are not a PhD student or visitor, a small contribution to the PSF Snacks Trust Fund is kindly requested. Please put your contribution in the piggy bank provided at PSF Coffee.

Note: During the time of the construction work at MPIA in 2019 and 2020 we will sometimes have to change the location, and rather convene in Seminar Room I of the Haus der Astronomie (HdA) or the MPIA Lecture Hall. Please always check the announcement emails!
