Heidelberg Joint Astronomical Colloquium

The Heidelberg Joint Astronomical Colloquium takes place on Tuesdays at 17:15 in the large auditorium of the Physikalisches Institut at Philosophenweg 12. The colloquium is organized jointly by the five astronomical institutes in Heidelberg, namely Astronomisches Rechen-Institut (ARI), Institut für theoretische Astrophysik (ITA), Landessternwarte (LSW), Max-Planck Institute für Astronomie (MPIA), and Max-Planck Institut für Kernphysik (MPI-K). Some of the talks are organized together with the particle physicists at the University of Heidelberg. These talks are marked by a yellow background in the program below.
