Second Junior Research Workshop in Bonn

The second Non-PI workshop takes place

from October 3rd to October 5th, 2007

at the AIfA in Bonn directly after the annual meeting of the TR33 in Bad Honnef. Junior Researchers are strongly encouraged to participate and register for both meetings.

Aim of the meeting

The meeting is intended for non-PI's involved in the Dark Universe research projects. The idea is to encourage the junior researchers to learn more about the topics of the transregio, meet other members and discuss their own projects within the network and start new collaborations.
