2 August 2010 - 6 August 2010
The Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, summer conference will focus on Dark Matter, bring together recent progress in astrophysical studies, direct and indirect detection experiemnts, and the LHC.
We invite applications for contributed talks and posters to fill an expanded format for the Darkness Visible meeting to be held at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge (UK). This meeting will bring together particle- and astro - physicists (theoretical, experimental and observational) to present recent advances in our understanding of dark matter at scales ranging from particle pysics to cosmology.
7 September 2009 - 8 September 2009
The aim of this conference is to bring together an outstanding group of young researchers to discuss theoretical and observational progress toward understanding accretion disc physics in Young Stellar Objects, compact binaries, and galactic nuclei.
17 July 2006 - 21 July 2006
Observations of the later evolutionary stages of discs around young stars offer the best opportunity to study planet formation from an observational perspective. Localised clearing of dust and gas in discs can be inferred from a variety of imaging/spectroscopic diagnostics and is often interpreted as evidence for planet formation; alternatively, such clearing results from some other process which needs to be taken into account when assessing the environment in which planets form.
