Bi-weekly meetings

The Extragalactic Research Group meets every other week, on Thursdays 11:30am, at the Atenea room, in the ESO Vitacura main building. The goal of these meetings is to provide a relaxed, informal atmosphere to present recent results, plots, papers and methods, in an environment that fosters open discussion. If you are visiting ESO-Chile and wish to present results in one of our meetings, please contact Rebeca Aladro, Juan Carlos Munoz or Dimitri Gadotti.
