It is currently scheduled for Tuesdays from 12:30 to 1:30 in the Interaction Zone, Howey Physics Building.
The format is basically that each week, a different student will present a paper from the literature (arXiv, or recently published) touching on AMO topics. You are encouraged to report on something other than you own work. Try to pick something significant, i.e. something that will probably be invited at the next DAMOP or MM.
This is a very different format from, say, a research talk where you present your own work. For example, there’s been a lot of coverage on the background material and general techniques, with less “drilling down” a specific paper. The ideal talk should aim to be something like 10 minutes long or so, but expect to be slowed down by questions. Also, I’d love to get the STUDENTS asking more questions. This is a format where it is OK to get “into the weeds” a bit. If the only thing you get from a paper is a technical detail, that’s fine! You’re more likely to use a technical detail in your own work anyway!
