Welcome to MPIA Galaxy Coffee Wiki!

Galaxy coffee is held each Thursday every week at 11:00 am in the Seminar room on the third floor at the MPIA.

Please contact any of the organizers if you would like to volunteer for the free slots available:

Galaxy Coffee rules:

  • keep the talk brief - as a guideline, focus on one punchline.
  • make sure to introduce the topic for the "general" audience, i.e. students and people not working in the field.
  • we encourage black board presentations, but slides are also welcome.
  • talk time: 10 - 15 minutes.
  • discussion time: 5 - 10 minutes (during or after the talk).
  • total time per slot must not exceed 25 minutes.
  • including some buffer for announcements and general discussions ('I always wondered if / how / why XYZ works' et al.), total Galaxy Coffee time is ~ 60 minutes.
