    October 11, 2022: 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

    Info

    We hope that your summer is going well. We are writing to introduce a new UofT talk series that will start this fall: The Astro Lunch Talk Series. Unlike the colloquium series, this Lunch talk will feature shorter research ‘snapshots’ by multiple speakers, who will be primarily composed of local and early career researchers. Broadly designed based on the previous G2000 talk series, the motivation for this series is to keep us engaged with each other and we therefore aim to foster a relaxing, comfortable, and interactive environment for both speakers and attendees. Although there are still a few things up in the air, we would like to start collecting feedback and nominations for speakers. Our current plan is to have the talks start at 1:10 pm every Tuesday, with food available from 12:30 pm. For more information about this event, please read the info at the end of this email. If you have any suggestions or feedback, or if you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a lunch talk, please fill out the Google form below (this can be done anonymously). You can fill out the form at any time throughout the year. Speaker nominations for September and October are extremely welcome. While spots can be reserved well in advance, some will also be available throughout the term to facilitate talks on new results, visitors, etc. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe-a8EePDymhiZG0h4SPUQPV8nzZoMOmtAlSxNcAZ7HWhP-pQ/viewform?usp=sf_link We also would like to strongly encourage everyone to fill out the following survey form at your earliest convenience.

    Info

    We hope that your summer is going well. We are writing to introduce a new UofT talk series that will start this fall: The Astro Lunch Talk Series. Unlike the colloquium series, this Lunch talk will feature shorter research ‘snapshots’ by multiple speakers, who will be primarily composed of local and early career researchers. Broadly designed based on the previous G2000 talk series, the motivation for this series is to keep us engaged with each other and we therefore aim to foster a relaxing, comfortable, and interactive environment for both speakers and attendees. Although there are still a few things up in the air, we would like to start collecting feedback and nominations for speakers. Our current plan is to have the talks start at 1:10 pm every Tuesday, with food available from 12:30 pm. For more information about this event, please read the info at the end of this email.
