Planetary Seminar / Journal Club

Planetary Science Journal Club seminar series is back on!

Meetings are conducted on Fridays at 11:30 – 12:30 in Room 445 of the PS building (building 121).

If you cannot attend, anyone can connect remotely through Zoom.

At our seminar series, everyone is welcome to bring food items and/or snacks and participate. The meetings last about 45 minutes, and are very informal. There will either be a research seminar or (preferably) a journal club.

A general list of topics and ground rules can be found here.

Please contact the organizer(s), Mary Hinkle (Mary Hinkle at knights.ucf.edu) or Theodora Karalidi (tkaralidi at ucf.edu) if you have questions or would like to give a talk.
Visit the archive page for this seminar series to see a list of speakers in past semesters, and some statistics on who has given talks.
