IoP 2012

HEPP and APP group Annual Meeting

2nd - 4th April

In the centenary year of the discovery of cosmic rays

The 2012 annual gathering of the High Energy Particle Physics and Astro Particle Physics groups of the IoP will take place at Queen Mary, University of London's Mile End Road Campus.  The programme will encompass activities in both High Energy and Astro Particle fields as well as discussing the synergies between them.  Talks will include the latest results from the LHC, up to date reports on neutrino, charged lepton and quark flavour physics, Dark Matter searches, nuclear astrophysics, gravitational waves, and a topical review of early cosmic ray discoveries.

The Mile End Campus is situated between the Stepney Green and Mile End tube stations, and is only a 15 minute tube ride from the heart of London. Directions to the campus can be found here.  Registration and the main meeting rooms will be in the Francis Bancroft Building, which can be located as building number 26 on the Campus Map and we look forward to seeing you in April.

A detailed conference agenda is under construction on INDICO, and the registration form for this meeting is (you will need to register for an indico account at CERN if you do not already have one).
