The weekly meetings of the Extragalactic Science Club provides a forum for informal conversations on extragalactic astrophysical topics.

As discussed during the meeting on 12/10/2010, we have now compiled a pool of papers from which the participants can choose their contribution. The full list can be found here .

Comments and suggestions to Georg Lamer or Christian Tapken.
