NOIRLab South Colloquia

The NOIRLab facilities in Chile – CTIO, Gemini, and SOAR – sponsor a colloquium series on any aspect of astronomical science. The staff would very much like to hear about your work. We invite anyone from the La Serena astronomical community – AURA, University of La Serena, Las Campanas, and ESO Observatories – to attend.

Our talks are generally scheduled at 11:00 am or 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday. However, because of travel and observing constraints, we can schedule your talk at any time Monday to Friday at a time convenient to you. We offer AURA motel room accommodations for our speakers. If you are willing, we would also like to post a copy of your talk in PDF format on our web page. This is strictly voluntary, however, so feel free to say no! In addition to our colloquium series, the AURA scientific staff have a staff tea every Friday at 11:00 am in the Olin G. Eggen Library. We encourage visitors to join us with any informal science, engineering, or technical topics they would like to present.

If you are interested in giving a talk during your visit to La Serena, please contact Ximena Herreros or Mario Urrutia.
