From Micrometres to Megaparsecs

Welcome

From Micrometres to Megaparsecs

When: 21 - 23 March 2018 - Abstract Submission Deadline: 30 November 2017

Where: Murray Lecture Theatre Complex, Building 58, Highfield Campus, University of Southampton

This conference aims to bring together GRADnet students from all areas of astronomy research. From micrometeorites at Kent, to cosmological surveys at Portsmouth, the GRADnet astronomy departments cover all sizes and scales of the Universe. The attendees 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. For example: how the physics of planetary system formation can scale up to galactic formation. The format of the conference will encourage diversity among contributed talks and posters. PGRs will have to opportunity to network, present and receive feedback on their work.

This conference will feature seven sessions spanning a range of astronomical scales, including a joint session on dark matter with the parallel High Energy Physics conference .

We encourage abstract submissions from PhD students and post-doctoral researchers for oral and poster presentations. To submit your abstract, please fill out the form under ‘Abstract Submission’.

Successful applicants will be notified by early January, who must then register for the conference via this link: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/from-micrometres-to-megaparsecs-student-led-conference-21-23-march-2018-registration-36410092567?ref=ebtn

The conference is funded by SEPnet - the South East Physics Network of universities. SEPnet will fully reimburse travel expenses for attendees from SEPnet (or similarly located) institutions to and from Southampton, and provide accommodation for both days.
