The annual Observatory Science Day will be held on Thursday, 6 September. The main goal of this day is to remind ourselves that the people working here are doing interesting research, and not just attending meetings, writing proposals, fighting with computers,... Secondary goals are:
The first fifteen minutes of each talk are meant for presentation, the remaining five for discussion. Please note that this is an 'intermediate-specialist meeting'. That is to say: the level is to be aimed at the level somewhere in between bachelor and master.
