Astro/Particle Journal Club

You are all invited to attend the bi-weekly Astro/Particle Journal club. In this meeting we will discuss literature of interest to the field, both recent and old. All are encouraged to bring papers along, as many papers makes for lively discussion. If you can please forward any papers you plan to bring to me (a.j.hryczuk@fys.uio.no) so I can update the list below prior to the meeting it would be much appreciated.

I look forward seeing you there!
