Colloquia

COLLOQUIA SERIES

Each semester the TAP Colloquia Committee invites new speakers working across all fields of theoretical astrophysics to share their current research. Along with providing a one-hour colloquium, each speaker also meets with faculty and students while on campus to discuss research more in depth. The TAP Colloquia series offers 5-6 talks on a bi-weekly basis. The goal of this program activity is to bring scholars to the UA campus to discuss new research, support shared research efforts and cross-fertilization, and increase awareness and communication across the broader U.S. community working in theoretical astrophysics.  Click here to view TAP posters.
