Joint Stony Brook / Brookhaven Cosmology Seminar

The joint SB/BNL Cosmology seminar happens biweekly with hosting alternating between SB and BNL. We encourage interested parties from both institutions to attend seminars at both institutions

When hosted at SB

Seminar is scheduled on select Wednesdays at 2:30pm in the Earth and Space Science (ESS) building, Room 450 (i.e. in the regular Stony Brook Astronomy seminar slot). It is followed by a discussion with wine & cheese, followed by the dinner with the speaker.

When hosted at BNL

Seminar is scheduled on select Thursdays at 3:00pm in the small seminar room in the Physics Department (Building 510) (i.e. in the regular BNL Particle Physics Seminar slot). It is followed by discussion with cookies & tea (sorry, no alcohol before 5pm at the lab) in the Large Seminar Room lounge (4.15-5), followed by the dinner with the speaker.
US citizens with a valid government issued ID (i.e. driver's licence) can access the site by showing their ID to the gate militia stating that they are visiting this event. Non-US citizens need to obtain BNL guest registration here. Specify Anze Slosar as host and LSST as the group.
