Group meeting

Date: Friday, Dec. 28th.
Time: 3:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Location: NAOC A408
Speaker: Silk Road members



This week Tea seminar will be an informal discussion session to exchange information in the team. But interested guests are welcome as always.

We will be talking about:

  1. How our future star cluster models can be used for observational projects (young star clusters, collaboration with MPIA Heidelberg, FAST, gravitational waves);
  2. Participation of Silk Road Team with NAOC in After Sloan 3 (AS3) survey;
  3. Plan for national and international conferences in 2013;
  4. Anything else we'd like to discuss.
