DAWN

Journal Club

The DAWN journal club

The purpose of the journal club is to discuss recent papers in fields related to DAWN's research fields, i.e. high-redshift galaxy evolution, massive galaxies, quenching, the interstellar medium, reionization, simulations, existing and upcoming surveys with HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, and more.

The journal club is for everyone (in particular also DARKers). You're more than welcome to just follow the discussions, but you're also encouraged to occasionally present papers, and to act as a moderator (see below).

If you're a DAWNer, you can find the Zoom link here.

To add yourself to the list of presenters and/or moderators, see  this guide.

    Time

    Mondays 10:30–11:00

    Place

    In the DAWN@NBI meeting area, as well as via Zoom

    Sorry no. You can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.

    Format

    We meet every Monday at 10:30 for 30 minutes, currently via Zoom. Please log in a few minutes before (!).

    During each session we will discuss two articles, presented by two of us.

    The discussions will be "chaired" by a moderator. We will take turns on being the moderator, following the list below. Please check to see when it's your time — if you know you're not available at that time, please swap with someone else.

    The role of the moderator

    Check the list below to see when it's your turn to be a moderator. If you're on a phone with a small screen, you may need to rotate your device by +π/2. Note that the list is subject to changes, in case that some sessions are canceled. The date should be correct within a month or so, though.

    Contact the admin to opt in or out of this list — anyone may join, and anyone may not.

    • Before

      the journal club session, the moderator should

      • Pick two recent papers from the arXiv.
      • Find two people that are able to present them.
        • To find a person suitable for presenting, you may consult this list of presenters.
        • You should find the presenters at the latest the preceding Wednesday, so that they have a chance to prepare the paper.
      • Send out a notification to the journal club mailing list so that we may have a chance to have a look at the papers.
      • Update the journal club history (see this guide on how to update this page).
    • During

      the discussions, it is the moderator's job to ensure that

      • We only spend 15 minutes per paper, and that
      • The discussions don't diverge into details that only two people find interesting.
    • After

      the discussions, please let the next moderator on the list know that they're up next

    Presenting a paper

    If you're asked to present a paper, you're of course free to decline. If you can suggest another presenter or, even better, have another paper you'd like to present, you'll make the moderator happy.

    Presenting a paper should not be a full, comprehensive lecture on the paper. You're not even expected to read it all in detail, or to be able to answer all questions. Focus on the parts that you find interesting. The whole discussion, including both your presentation and possibly a subsequent discussion, should be no longer than 15 minutes.

    If you're willing to present a paper once in a while, please add yourself to this list of presenters.

    History

    All the papers we've discussed — including the ones coming up — are listed here.

    Once two presenters has been found, the moderator should put the papers in this list (see here how to edit). Latest dates go in the top.
