Students and postdocs are encouraged to present a ~1 min slide to introduce yourselves and what you are working on to the visitors (it does not necessarily have to be directly associated with ASTROSAT).  And if you are keen on the science, we suggest thinking about "What is the one thing that you would like ASTROSAT to definitely do?" and contribute to the discussions.
