Tuesday, October 26th,
The 1st Indiana Astrophysics meeting will be dedicated to learning about the research and educational efforts that are taking place at different institutions in the state of Indiana. It will provide an opportunity for exchanging ideas and hopefully fostering collaborations. The meeting will have Prof. Joseph Silk (Savilian Professor of Astronomy at the University of Oxford) as a special guest.
is a great opportunity for all of us to get together and to promote
research and education in astrophysics within the state of Indiana.
We also consider it to be a good opportunity for graduate and
undergraduate students involved in research to
interact with faculty and students in other institutions as
