We are pleased to announce that your CASCA Graduate Student Committee is launching a new seminar series entitled CaTS — Canadian Telescope Seminars. The goal of these quarterly seminars is to highlight the opportunities provided to Canadian graduate students by the many and diverse astronomical observatories located in Canada or heavily involved in Canadian astronomy. During each session, an observatory will present its telescopes, instruments, and personnel.
Since the goal is to bolster graduate student involvement at these institutions, the observatories will focus on how graduate students can implicate themselves in the observatory through research projects and/or observation time proposals. Unless otherwise noted, the sessions take place at 3 PM EST.
