SFIR (pronounced “sapphire”) is the Star Formation/ISM Rendezvous, a seminar covering research on all aspects of star formation and the interstellar medium in both the Milky Way and external galaxies.  SFIR is open to all interested members of the Princeton+IAS astrophysics community, as well as visitors from other departments.    

Members of the department (students, postdocs, and faculty) and visitors present research talks, at varying levels of formality, allowing for extensive discussion.   Contributions may also include journal-club style presentations and other updates and discussions.

The current speaker list for this semester is below and more info can be found on the SFIR website: https://sfirprinceton.github.io/
