About

CosmoCoffee is a weekly seminar at the University of Helsinki where researchers in cosmology and related fields gather to discuss the field’s recent developments and published articles over a cup of coffee. In spring 2020, we gather on Thursdays, 14:15-15:00, in the Physicum room A311.

All participants are  encouraged to bring up papers they wish to discuss. We also have scheduled presentations.

Schedule

We gather every week, unless otherwise specified. List of papers to be discussed can be found here.
