Welcome to the CRAL seminar page

Seminars take place on Fridays at 11:00am in the amphitheater of the Charles André site of CRAL, i.e. the historical Observatoire de Lyon. We aim to cover a wide range of topics within the broad theme of Astronomy and Astrophysics, and welcome speakers from around France and across Europe.

- For Scheduled Speakers:

We suggest that you arrive at the observatory by 10:30am on the day of your seminar in order to allow for set-up, coffee, and chatting with staff at the observatory.

Approximately 50 minutes of material is ideal for the length of your presentation, we aim to have the seminar plus question session finished within the hour.

The audience at CRAL is diverse, including several research groups and engineers.

Levels within the audience will range from masters students, PhD students, postdocs to faculty staff.

English is ideal for the presentation. If you prefer to present your work in French we can arrange this in advance.
