The Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Friday Lunch Seminar (APSFLS): A community-building opportunity

APSFLS is a seminar advertised to the Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Department members and related research organizations. The seminar series aims to provide an opportunity for junior scientists to speak about their scientific work, as well as an opportunity for members of our community to informally socialize, network, and build collaborative relationships.  While the lunch seminar's primary focus is scientific research, we welcome discussion of diversity, equity, and inclusion topics related to conducting work in our scientific field if the speaker wishes.

When: Fridays from 12 pm - 2 pm. Talks are held in-person and via Zoom.

  • Pizza Lunch 12:00 -12:30
  • 10 Minute Local Speaker 12:20 - 12:30
  • Main Talk and Q&A 12:30 -1:15
  • Coffee and Discussion 1:15 - 2:00

Location: Sunrise Room (JILA 10th Floor) 

Please fill out this form if you would like to present such a talk at CU in the 2022-2023 academic year or to nominate someone else to be invited as a speaker. We particularly encourage nominations for speakers from historically excluded groups. 

Talks are primarily held in-person, but there is an option to speak via Zoom. For in-person presenters, travel funds may be available upon request.
