[Past and future seminars]

To speakers: Please be sure to send an abstract of your talk to Thayne Currie (tcurrie at cfa) by the close of business on the Wednesday (or at the very latest, 12pm EST/EDT on the Thursday) before the talk, in order to allow us to advertise it in the weekly CfA events calendar. Directions to the CfA are available here, and the OIR group maintain a useful guide to local accommodations for visitors from out of town.

Please contact Thayne Currie (tcurrie at cfa) if you would like to give a talk, or if you have a visitor that you would like us to invite to give a talk.
