The IMPRS seminar is meant to provide a central meeting opportunity for all
IMPRS students in order to exchange ideas and experience.
In the winter term, the IMPRS seminar is held as a "Oberseminar", ie. as literature seminar discussing current research highlights as well as fundamental knowledge from recent astrophysics literature.
In the summer term, the IMPRS seminar is held as an advanced seminar ("Fortgeschrittenenseminar") with presentations of ongoing thesis projects.
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.
Visitors are welcome! The seminar is open for non-IMPRS students.
