Theo Murphy international scientific meeting organised by Professor Joseph Conlon, Dr David Marsh and Dr Helen Russell.

The use of X-ray astronomy for fundamental physics has been seen in two areas; dark matter through the 3.5 keV line, and in searches for axion-like particles. In advance of satellite technological leaps, this meeting will bring together astronomy and particle physics communities with a focus on the ability of existing and future X-ray observatories to search for and constrain fundamental physics. It will explore the opportunities open to astronomers to probe fundamental physics with both existing archival data and also with future satellites such as ATHENA. 

This is a residential conference, which allows for increased discussion and networking. 

More information can be found on the meeting webpage.
