IRAC Extragalactic Journal Club

2004 Schedule 2005 Schedule 2006-7 Schedule 2008 Schedule Current Schedule

The IRAC Extragalactic Journal Club meets informally throughout the year to discuss recent articles and issues pertaining to extragalactic infrared astronomy. The emphasis is particularly on topics that are relevant to the science programs being carried out by the IRAC science team here at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Meetings are usually held in the ISC on the 2nd floor of 160 Concord Ave. To receive Journal Club announcements, send an e-mail to Matthew Ashby.

Our next meeting will take place at 12 pm Monday, December 13. Francesco Massaro will lead the discussion.
