The Galaxy Lunch Series is a series of informal talks on topics related to Galactic & extragalactic astronomy and large-scale structure. The "suggested theme" for local speakers for the Spring 2013 semester is "Galaxies Near and Far: The 1st Year of ALMA Sciene". Speakers are free to present their own research or present published articles which they find of particular interest. A list of suggested papers can be found here.
The audience consists of faculty members, research staff, as well as graduate and undergraduate students, so talks should be at a level accessible to most. Galaxy Lunch is open to talks from all members of the Cornell astronomy department, as well as to visiting scientists and speakers from different disciplines/departments.
The Galaxy Lunch Series is held every Friday during the academic year, at 12:20pm, in Space Sciences room 622. If you are interested in giving a talk please contact Carl Ferkinhoff or Greg Hallenbeck, the organizers for the 2012 - 2013 academic year.
