We plan now to have 3 speakers (professors and others with a Ph.D) for 12 minutes each (+6 minutes discussion) during that hour, selected from different research groups here in our Department of Earth Sciences. The identities of the speakers will not be known to the audience beforehand. The speakers (I have a lengthy list of those who have already volunteered) will find out a few days beforehand (i.e., by the previous Wednesday) that they will be speaking. Everybody from our Department (undergraduate students, graduate students, researchers and professors) is welcome to attend The Afternoon Balloons. There is space for about 100 in that room.
The Balloon concept is that the Balloon is a 'test balloon' of a relatively new research idea or result or proposed-work that is launched by the speaker to his/her colleagues and to undergrad/grad students to see if the research ideas represented in the balloon can 'fly'.
Personally, I don't really know what other people in our Department are working on. This is the main thing that we want to try to improve with The Afternoon Balloons seminar series.
This seminar series 'The Afternoon Balloons' is adapted from the Noon Balloon seminar series at the Department of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago, where I used to work. That Department at the University of Chicago was a rather diverse department (much like our own) and included research groups in climate science, paleontology, geophysics, cosmochemistry, glaciology, tectonics, etc.
We do plan to schedule some of The Afternoon Balloons to happen at the Institute of Meteorologyand Space Sciences Institutes building in Steglitz,
pending approval and agreement.
Due to circumstances outside my control, we will not have an event on November 24.Therefore, the next event will be on January 12.
