The calendars below indicate currently open slots.

TUNA talks are traditionally on Tuesdays, but Mondays and Wednesdays can be accomodated if enough advance notice is given (also subject to room availability). Turn-up may be lower on non-Tuesdays, though. TUNA talks are generally not possible on Thursdays and Fridays due to conflicts with the NTC ELF talk, ER colloquium and pizza lunch schedules.
