Advances in High Energy Physics and Cosmology: Student-led Conference 21-23 March 2018
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)

This conference aims to bring together students from all GRADnet nodes and provide high quality lectures from experts in the fields over a variety of topics.
Students attending will learn from a wide range of topics, which include dark matter, gravitational waves and other cosmological topics. There will also be sessions for students to present their own research in addition to learning from accomplished lecturers.
Organisers: Simon King, University of Southampton, Sonali Mohapatra and Jack Setford, University of Sussex.
The parallel conference is From Micrometres to Megaparsecs and aims to bring together students from all areas of astronomy research. There will be cross-over lectures which are relevant to students of both particle physics and astronomy.
The deadline to register is 7 February 2018. Register here.
