IMPRS seminar

IMPRS seminar winter term 2016/17

The IMPRS seminar provides a central meeting opportunity for all IMPRS fellows in order to exchange ideas and experience from different research areas. 

In the winter term, the IMPRS seminar is held as a "Oberseminar", ie. as literature seminar with presentations of current research highlights and of fundamental papers in the astrophysics literature.
In the summer term, the IMPRS seminar is held as an advanced research seminar ("Fortgeschrittenenseminar") with doctoral candidates presenting their ongoing thesis project.
After the 1st academic year of an IMPRS generation, the IMPRS seminar continues in the 2nd year as a seminar workshop - an external retreat of 3-4 days during which IMPRS fellows present an update of their thesis projects.
