We meet every Monday at 1.30pm to discuss the new developments in the fields of research relevant for GRAPPA members and affiliates. The idea is to discuss briefly, with the help of a projector, the results of ~5 interesting papers recently appeared on the arXiv, or anywhere else. Please choose one posted e.g. this week in your field and tell us about it in 5-10 minutes. Feel free to join us even if you haven't read anything.

Nijmegen12 Astroparticle Physics Summer School

Every three years the Netherlands hosts the 'Nijmegen' Astroparticle Physics Summer School for PhD students and postdocs. Topics include: Cosmology, Cosmic Microwave Background, Gravitational Waves, Neutrinos, Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays, Dark Matter, and Dark Energy. Lectures are given in the morning while the afternoons are reserved for a special training project aimed at acquiring skills in presenting, defending and reviewing modern research proposals in astroparticle physics.

The next school will take place from July 25-August 3 2012, at Schloss Gnadenthal, just across the German border from Nijmegen. The school website is not yet officially live, but you can get a first look at the line-up of lecturers (which is excellent!). Please consider sending your PhD students along to this!
