La Palma Astronomy Student Journal Club

This student project was proposed in fall of 2019 by the GTC student Tereza Jerabkova backed up by the ING students Thomas Davison (2018/19) and Viktoria Pinter (2019/20).

We encourage the astronomy and engineering resident students to join our journal club while in La Palma. Please contact the literature club organisers, Tereza Jerabkova, Thomas Davison or Viktoria Pinter if you would like to join our club or give a presentation.

The literature club meetings usually take place in our sea-level ING base in Santa Cruz de La Palma, on the 6th floor of Mayantigo building. Other few such meetings are organised at the GTC/IAC CALP or NOT/TNG Fundacion Galilei offices in San Antonio (10 min by car/bus from Santa Cruz).

The meetings are free for other ORM staff astronomers or visitors to attend.
