Journal Club

The Cosmology Journal Club is a series of weekly informal discussions of recent papers published or posted on the arXiv. The scope is meant to be very broad but the papers should somehow be related to cosmology. We are hoping theorists, experimentalists and observers from both the Physics and the Astronomy Departments will drop by.

We will have two ~20 minute talks. The first talk will be from a current undergrad/graduate student on their research or papers relating to their research. The second talk will be an arXiv review of recent papers of interest led by faculty members or postdocs. Each presentation is followed by a 10 minute discussion for questions and comments from the audience. The goal is to keep the entire process very informal.

For Summer 2023 the Journal Club will be held Friday from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CST (times subject to change for Fall 2023), unless otherwise noted. Please feel free to bring along your lunch. It takes place in 5280 Chamberlin Hall. The Journal Club will be held in a hybrid format. All faculty, postdocs, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students with an interest in Cosmology and Astrophysics are welcome to listen, suggest and present!
