CfA Colloquia

CfA Colloquia offer an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and staff to hear about topics at the forefront of astrophysical research from leaders in their field. Themes range from upcoming NASA missions to the latest detections that are shifting and sharpening astronomical research and analysis. The colloquia are designed to bring scientists together and foster discussion across disciplines, encouraging collaboration.

These events are reserved for CfA staff, however videos of colloquia are live-streamed and available later via our public archive on YouTube.
