Seminars & Colloquia

Most seminars at GISS are held during the academic year, September through May.

Formal seminar presentations by visiting scientists are held many Fridays at 11:00 a.m.

Informal lunchtime presentations by NASA GISS staff take place on Wednesdays (usually) at 1:00 p.m. about twice per month.

Other special seminars occur from time to time as visitors' schedules permit.

Security Note

Regulations require that visitors arrange in advance for a building pass. Persons attending a NASA GISS seminar or colloquium should contact the event host at least two days in advance of the event for assistance. Please include your affiliation in your e-mail.

Due to implementation of the REAL ID Act (2005), a state driver's license or identification card is currently (as of spring 2020) required for admittance to the GISS premises, which is considered a federal facility. However, if you have a state-issued license or ID that is not considered REAL-ID compliant, you are urged to obtain one before entrance regulations change, which is expected to occur in October 2020.

Persons who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents and who may be planning a visit to GISS require that special arrangements be made. Please co-ordinate with your GISS host on this at least three weeks before your visit.

All visitors can expect to have their bags searched upon entry to GISS. This may include having to answer questions about personal items, including any medication the visitor may be carrying.
