PSF Coffee MPIA    PSF Group

Hello and welcome to MPIA's Planet and Star Formation Coffee!

PSF Coffee is held every wednesday at 14:00 in MPIA's lecture hall!

For volunteering for slots, please contact Aida Ahmadi (ahmadi), Hendrik Linz (linz), or Markus Feldt (feldt)!


* PSF Coffee is started by an informal part. Short contributions (<= 3 slides) are allowed during this part. Such short contributions may be pre-announced or spontaneous.
* There are up to 2 slots for talks available per instance.
* Talks should not exceed ~15 minutes leaving ample time for discussion.
* Talks should focus on a single result or work in progress and not contain too many slides.
* Discussion, also during talks, is strongly encouraged!
* Total time is about 60 minutes!
* PSF Coffee never gets fully canceled, but in case of no announced talks, there will be no coffee provided...
* If you drink coffee or eat cookies and are not a PhD student or visitor, a small contribution to the PSF Snacks Trust Fund is kindly requested.
