The Astrocoffee is a meeting of people from several groups belonging to the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at Goethe University and the Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies (FIAS). The areas of research include compact stars and physics of dense matter, astroparticle physics, quantum gravity, and cosmology. The seminars are usually held in room 100 at FIAS, but sometimes also at the ITP. Not surprisingly, exquisite coffee is served before the seminar.
