Königstuhl Colloquium

Königstuhl Colloquium (KoCo) is a joint colloquium of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) and the Landessternwarte (LSW) of the ZAH, where scientists from both institutions as well as their guests present new results.

Date and Time:

Every Friday at 11:00 h in the lecture hall of MPIA.

If you or your guest are interested in giving a presentation, please, contact the KoCo organizing committee at 

Presentations should be no longer than 40-45min, provide a general introduction to the topic and present recent results in a wider context as the audience has a wide range of scientific expertise (graduate students to senior staff) and background ranging from Galactic to cosmology.

Königstuhl Colloquium Signature Speaker Series

In addition to in-house speakers and guests of the institutes at the Königstuhl, a small set of high profile and high standing scientists that work in fields of interest to the institute scientists and that are not already their collaborators is invited every year to provide opportunities for new collaborations.
