IMPRS seminar

IMPRS seminar winter term 2023/24

This is the webpage for the ongoing IMPRS seminar. For past seminars please check the links to the seminar archive above.

The IMPRS seminar provides a central meeting opportunity for all IMPRS fellows for scientific and social exchange. 

In the winter term, the IMPRS seminar is held as a literature seminar ("Oberseminar") with presentations about of current research highlights and/or fundamental papers in the astrophysics literature.
In the summer term, the IMPRS seminar is held as an advanced research seminar ("Fortgeschrittenenseminar") with the IMPRS fellows presenting their 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 the IMPRS fellows present an update of their thesis project.
