Join us for a talk on the construction and principles of the Pierre Auger Observatory (PAO) a cosmic ray observatory in Argentina, spiced up with fresh shots from the presenter’s last trip. Followed by a Q&A with the presenter, material physicist Jan Tomáštík, PhD. At the PAO a group of international scientists (including Czechs) now study the most distant mysteries of space through a telescope whose area is roughly three times that of New York City. 

The lecture with a presentation will be focused on the latest developments of negotiation science. Emphasis will be put on integrating latest research of neuroscience and also irrationality in decision making and negotiation. And we will together translate this deeper understanding of theory into practical guidelines for getting better deals.

Czech Science Café series

Science Café is a new series of popular science presentations and talks by the best Czech scientists of today presented by the Czech Center New York. Inspired by the phenomenon of Cafe Scientifique which was first established in the UK in 1998 and spread across the world as a place where anyone could come to discuss the latest ideas in science and technology over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, Science Café is an informal forum for the discussion of current work and interesting scientific issues.

Come and mingle with people with different interests while enjoying a cup of coffee or tea. An informal presentation from the speaker introducing the topic will be followed by a discussion where everyone will have an opportunity to ask questions.
