Coffee/Tea + Biscuits CAAUL/OAL Journal Club

CAAUL Journal coffee/tea + Biscuits club. Every week on Thursdays, 11h, in the CAAUL/OAL library with coffee, tea and biscuits. All areas of Astronomy/Astrophysics welcome!

- Up to 4-5 papers per week/session, <60 min.
- Max of ~10 min per paper [enough to highlight the main results and shortcomings to non-specialists, but also not too long in order to avoid too many details that may not be interesting for everyone].
- Papers are presented by people that suggest them (e-mail your paper suggestions to: dsobral ( up to a day before).
- Open to everyone, including students. 

Next session: TBA
