Shiny new feature! Import this URL (do not download the file) in your preferred calendar application to have a (hopefully always updated) list of journal club appointments:
Examples. In macOS calendar, go to "File > New Calendar Subscription" and paste the URL, configure as you want but I suggest to refresh weekly. In KDE's KOrganizer calendar, right click on the calendars list, choose "Add Calendar" and select "ICal Calendar File", in the filename entry paste the URL, check the "Read only" box and refresh from time to time to be always updated.

New Journal Club rules! See the bottom of this page for more information.

And here's how it works:

  • Pick three recent papers from the arXiv (cond-mat or quant-ph), PRL, PRB, PRA, Phys. Rev. Research, EPL, Nature, Nature Phys., or Science (no review articles).
  • Preferably, the paper should not be older than a week, or from the current issue in case of a monthly journal. Exception can be made in special cases.
  • The paper has to be of a theory flavour. If in an exceptional case an experimental work is presented, then the theoretical background must be thoroughly explained.
  • Send these papers until friday noon to Guido, Wolfgang, and Philipp and indicate your preferences.
  • Prepare a talk of 20 minutes. Including questions from the audience, the total duration of the presentation should not exceed 30 minutes.
  • Pay special attention to the proper introduction and motivation of the underlying concepts. Half of the talk should cover the basics. In general, focus on the most important observed effects. It might not be necessary to show every single figure from the paper.
  • Compile a list with about 10 further articles (including abstracts).
  • Announce the paper you will be presenting by writing to the mailing list. You may include the list of further articles.
