Hypatia Colloquium: Early Career Astronomer series at ESO

Encouraged by the positive response of the community to its first edition in 2021, the Office for Science in the Directorate of Science is glad to organise the "Hypatia Colloquium" series 2022, dedicated to early career astronomers (up to 3 years from the PhD).

Please find here the details about the call for abstracts 2022.


-- Please find here the booklet of proceedings of the Hypatia Colloquium 2021 --


Each event foresees two 20min talks followed by questions and discussion. The seminars will be live streamed on the dedicated YouTube page and will remain available on the same channel on a playlist. All astronomers will be invited to remotely attend the talks. The participation to the web events can be done in two ways:

  • Registered participant: you can register using the dedicated Registration Form. Registered participants will be able to attend the seminars and interact with the speakers via a Zoom meeting. You can choose to participate to a selection of events or to all. An email will be sent to you 1 hour before the beginning of the event with the instructions on how to connect to the Zoom event. The number of registered participants is limited to 100 per event.
  • YouTube attendees: everyone can attend the live events on the dedicated YouTube page. All YouTube attendees will be able to make questions during the live event using a dedicated chat. We encourage you to subscribe to the channel to get automatic notifications each time a new Live Event starts.  Attendees who do not have a Google/YouTube account can send their questions using the dedicated form.

The events will be advertised broadly via the ESO Science Newsletter and social media to reach the wide astronomical community.
