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, and/or add yourself to the list of moderators (see here for a guide on how to edit this page). If you don't have a profile on this site, you can just contact the journal club admin.
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
The moderator should pick out two recent papers from the arXiv and find two people that are able to present them. To find a person suitable for presenting, they may consult this list of presenters (currently an external page, due to the presence of non-DAWNers).
The moderator should find the presenters at the latest the preceding Wednesday. When the presenters have been found, please send out a notification to the journal club mailing list so that we may have a chance to have a look at it. Please also update the journal club history, following this guide on how to update this page.
Furthermore, during the discussions it is the moderator's job to ensure that we only spend 15 minutes per paper, and that the discussion doesn't diverge into details that only two people find interesting.
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.

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,
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. Latest dates go in the top.
