AAO Colloquia

The AAO organises frequent colloquia at our North Ryde headquarters. These are usually held Thursday morning at 11:00 am, though other dates are occasionally scheduled. We welcome talks from visiting astronomers - if you are passing through Sydney and would like to tell us about your work, please fill out the AAO Visitor Form. The ATNF (Australia Telescope National Facility) also organises colloquia at their Epping offices. A schedule for these talks can be found on the ATNF Colloquia webpage. The AAO and ATNF occasionally organise Joint Colloquia when the speaker is likely to be of interest to both radio and optical communities. These talks will be found in both the list below, and the ATNF schedule. A list of past speakers can also be found below.
