AbstractDuring the semester there is a colloquium every week on actual research by the members of the Institute of Astrophysics. In general, colloquia are 20 minutes excluding discussion. They start with a general introduction, review techniques and methods of general interest and present results. The goal is to inform all members of the institute about current work.
ObjectiveA colloquium is a combination of a 10 minute conference paper preceded by a 10 minute widely understandable introduction. The discussion is limited to 10 minutes, but may continue privately. The research colloquia are announced in the ETH Vorlesungsverzeichnis, but are not publicized in the Wochenbulletin of the Department of Physics. All colloquia are given in English.
