Meeting of Astrophysics Students at Stanford (MASS)


For announcements, subscribe to the the astro-mass mailing list.

MASS is a forum for graduate students in astronomy and astrophysics to discuss important ideas which nevertheless tend to be absent from classes, colloquia, and tea talks. It is intended to provide a crash course in the theoretical, observational, and experimental aspects of many areas of astrophysics and an informal setting in which to discuss our own work. Undergrads and non-astro types are welcome to join. Postdocs and faculty are also welcome; however, the content of the meetings will be aimed at students who are learning the methods of astronomy and astrophysics for the first time.

Speakers are more or less free to choose the topics of their presentations. To suggest a talk on a particular subject or to volunteer to give a talk, contact the organizer (Devon Powell - email: dmpowel1 AT stanford DOT edu).
