Journal Club Meetings

Recently I’ve been given the responsibility to run regular Journal Club Meetings at the Centre for Astronomy of NUIG. After trying to pull together the list of potential candidates I’ve finally organised them together and today we had our “opening” meeting. 

The idea behind the Journal Club is following: We have 2 speakers who present recently published papers of their choice. The papers should not be related to them but could be related to their research. Every speaker gets 20 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes afterwards for the questions. 

We got 2 speakers one was Gregg Hallinan and the other was me. The audience was full and everybody seamed quite interested in the presented topics. Hope that next Thursday the turnout would be as good as this one.
