About IACTalks

IACTalks is a free and open access seminars archive aimed at promoting astronomy and the exchange of ideas by providing high quality scientific seminars to the astronomical community.

Since April 2008, at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) we have been webcasting and archiving our weekly seminars and monthly colloquia about the most exciting topics in astronomy and astronomical research.  The talks cover both observational and theoretical astronomy and include diverse topics such as Particle and Stellar Physics, Galaxies and Cosmology, and astronomical instrumentation and telescopes. The format of the talks at the IAC is either Seminar, Colloquium or Breaking News.

The seminars are aimed at a general astronomical audience and mainly given by postdocs and distinguished astronomers, including the directors of world class observatories. The colloquium speakers are high profile astronomers/scientists and over the years have included Fellows of the Royal Astronomical Society and members of the National Academy of Sciences. In Breaking News outstanding scientific advances made by IAC researchers are presented.
