Welcome to the Astro-Siesta page!
Astro-Siesta are informal talks on various astrophysical/astronomical research projects, but different topics are also welcome!
Astro-Siesta are usually held by IASF staff members and last 20 min (30 min for “external” people), plus additional time for questions. It is recommended to include a brief general introduction on the topic for non-experts in the presentation.
The next astro-siesta are listed below. Astro-siesta are held in the IASF meeting room (Sala riunioni) on the fourth floor every other Thursdays (holidays permitting) at 2:30pm.
