IMPRS seminar summer term 2012

The IMPRS seminar provides a central meeting opportunity for all IMPRS students in order to exchange ideas and experience from different research areas.
In the winter term, the IMPRS seminar is held as a "Oberseminar", ie. as literature seminar with presentations of current research highlights and of fundamental papers in the astrophysics literature.
In the summer term, the IMPRS seminar is held as an advanced research seminar ("Fortgeschrittenenseminar") with students presenting their ongoing thesis project.
After the 1st academic year of an IMPRS generation, the IMPRS seminar continues in the 2nd year as a seminar workshop - an external retreat of 3-4 days during which students present an update of their thesis projects.

The IMPRS seminar summer term 2012:
Location: Grosser Hoersaal, and Seminarraum 1, Physics buildings, Philosophenweg 12, or Albert-Ueberle-Str.3-7
Date: Thursday, 17:15
Tutors: Christian Fendt (CF); Simon Glover (SG);
Andreas Koch (AK); Glenn van de Ven (GV)
Please, prepare for a 25-30 min presentation including 5-10 min discussion
IMPRS will check for regular attendence
