Seminar Series
JAC Logo

The UHH Research Park includes the headquarters for the Joint Astronomy Centre, the Caltech Submillimeter Observatory, Subaru, Gemini, the Smithsonian Submillimeter Array and the Institute for Astronomy, plus the astronomers at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We are one of the major centres for astronomy in the world and encourage all visiting astronomers to take advantage of the proximity of these institutes, and give a seminar while visiting Hilo. Your talk will be advertised at each of the above institutes.

Upcoming Seminars:

Monday 24th November at 2pm
Kaja Rotermund
Dalhousie University, Canada

"The POLARBEAR-2 Experiment and the LC resonant cold readout circuitry"

Where and How:
JAC seminars are (usually) held in the second floor conference room at the Joint Astronomy Centre, 660 N. A'ohoku Place, Hilo, Hawaii. Please note that access to JAC is possible only through the main entrance (through the side doors facing Subaru). The back doors (towards Gemini) are usually locked.

If you would like to view the seminar via Polycom, please contact Harriet Parsons well in advance of the talk and she'll make sure it's switched on!


The JAC phone number is: (808) 961-3756

Giving a seminar:
If you are an observer at the JCMT you will be asked on your reservation form if you are interested in giving an informal seminar; if you select yes Holly will contact you to arrange it.
Any other speakers are always welcome but please contact Harriet directly at (808) 969-6520 or by email: h.parsons at
