Young Theorists' Forum is an annual two day event designed to bring together doctoral students working in theoretical physics, providing them with the opportunity to present their work to a sympathetic audience, via a short (15 or 30 minute) talk or poster presentation.
In addition, we are hoping to invite an experienced researcher to give a plenary session of general interest.
Our aim is to foster development of early career researchers and encourage collaboration between different universities.
Speakers are drawn from those attending, and are invited to speak in one of the following sessions:
· Beyond the Standard Model & Standard Model Phenomenology
· Gravity and Cosmology
· Lattice Field Theory
· Solitons, Two Dimensional & Conformal Field Theories
· Strings and M-theory
This list is not exhaustive and speakers from other areas are also welcome.
Postgraduates working in theoretical physics, from the UK or further abroad, are encouraged to apply.
We anticipate being able to fund accommodation for the majority of attendees, with priority given to speakers if demand is exceptionally high.
Historically, students attending YTF are also expected to attend the Annual Theory Meeting which will this year occur before YTF, from 17 to 19 December.
Those attending the ATM may be reimbursed for their travel.
NB: places at the ATM are limited - ask around your department!
