TVS Colloquium Series

In addition to our regular meetings, TVS hosts a colloquium series designed to feature a wide range topics in greater detail. These topics include science both directly related to LSST and also other topics of general interest to our members.

We are also keen to feature topics of broad cultural interest, and welcome thought-provoking perspectives on science from all cultures and faiths, as well as from art and history.

TVS Colloquia are recorded, and are shared publicly on our YouTube channel (search for Rubin LSST TVS Science Collaboration) with the speaker's permission.
The Colloquium Series is organized by Katja Bricman, of the University of Nova Gorica, Slovenia, and all members are encouraged to contact her via the LSST Slack to propose future colloquium topics.
