Call for Abstracts for Student-led Conference 21-23 March 2018: From Micrometres to Megaparsecs
Who: Postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers from the SEPnet region with research interests in this year’s conference topics. A limited number of places are available to early stage researchers beyond the region.
What: Two parallel research conferences proposed and organised by students wanting to advance their research and extend their collaborations. The conferences include talks by invited speakers and students as well as poster and recreational sessions.
When: 21-23 March 2018 (Arrival 18:00 on 21 March 2018)
Where: Murray Lecture Building, Highfield Campus, University of Southampton. (Accommodation at Glen Eyre Complex, Highfield Campus)
Numbers: Circa 35 delegates
This conference aims to bring together students from all areas of astronomy research. From micrometeorites at Kent, to cosmological surveys at Portsmouth, the GRADnet groups and astronomy departments cover all sizes and scales of the Universe. Students will gain knowledge of a wide range of research techniques applied to the various size scales, and see where such techniques may cross over and enhance their own research; e.g. how the physics of planetary system formation can scale up to galactic formation.
Organisers: Sam Billington, Justyn Campbell-White, University of Kent, and Ben Mawdsley, University of Portsmouth
The parallel conference is Advances in High Energy Physics and Cosmology and aims to bring together students from all areas of particle physics research. There will be cross-over lectures which are relevant to students of both astronomy and particle physics.
Abstract deadline 30 November 2017: Submit your abstract here. Once your abstract has been accepted you will be notified by the conference organiser to register for this conference.
The deadline to register is 7 February 2018.
