Σεμινάρια Αστροφυσικής

Εχουμε μία σειρά απο εβδομαδιαίες συναντήσεις κάθε Τετάρτη στη 1:00μμ. Οι συναντήσεις αυτές γίνονται στην αίθουσα σεμιναρίων 2ου ορόφου του κτηρίου του τμήματος Φυσικής, είναι ανεπίσημες, και μπορεί να είναι είτε ανοικτές συζητήσεις, είτε παρουσιάσεις από μέλη της ομάδας ή επισκέπτες.

Εάν ενδιαφέρεστε να κάνετε μία παρουσίαση σε μία από αυτές τις συναντήσεις, να δώσετε ένα σεμινάριο με τα πρόσφατα αποτελέσματά σας, ή απλά να μας επισκεφθείτε, επικοινωνήστε με την κ. Β. Παυλίδου.

Ο ακόλουθος πίνακας παρουσιάζει τα προγραμματισμένα σεμινάρια, καθώς και αυτά που πραγματοποιήθηκαν στο πρόσφατο παρελθόν.
