[NRAO] [UVa Astronomy] Joint Colloquia Planning Calendar for 2009-2010
NRAO and U.Va. Department of Astronomy

This page is used for scheduling of Charlottesville astronomy/astrophysics colloquia by Scott Ransom and Aaron Evans.
Once dates have been agreed on by the speakers and hosts, they are added to the online calendar which may therefore be 1-2 days out of date.

Usually colloquia are Thursdays at 4:00 PM in NRAO's Edgemont Rd auditorium.  However, other days of the week (especially Mondays) at 4:00 PM are possible as well. 

Coffee and cookies are served 15-20 min before the talks.
 
Dates in red are at special times or locations.
Open dates, with speakers to be determined, are in green.
Dates with no planned talks are in blue.

If the hosting institution is listed as CCU, that is the new joint Center for Chemistry of the Universe.
