This is the third in a series of workshops on astro-particle physics with multiple messengers and the first to take place in Oxford.

It includes a series of lectures on the topic at the post-graduate level given by members of the collaboration. These lectures are open to all interested.

Presentations of their current research will also be given by PhD students of the collaboration. These, however take place behind closed doors.

The programme is listed below:

BBC Stargazing Live Event

Stargazing Oxford returns on the 12th January 2013 from 2pm to 10pm (last entry 9.30pm)

Axions are a well motivated candidate to compose a fraction of the dark matter in the universe as observationally required from cosmological measurements. They are predicted independently as a resolution to the strong CP problem in particle physics. Axion cosmology has a long and fruitful history dating from the 1980's. With the advent of precision cosmology in recent decades it has gained new attention.

Physics and the Future of Medicine

Dr Sonia Contera

23 Nov 2012 - 9:00am to 5:30pm

Over the last few years, there has been growing interest in using intensity mapping to study the large scale structure of the Universe. We will be holding an informal workshop on the topic at Oxford on Friday, 23rd of November (from 9:30AM to 5PM) to discuss the state of play of this exciting field. We plan to have short talks on

Stargazing Oxfordshire - Astronomy Evening

Find out more about research in astrophysics from professional scientists, and observe the night sky with your local community astronomers.

6 Nov 2012 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Particle accelerators: making the Higgs Boson and more!

Professor Philip Burrows


6 Nov 2012 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

On Tuesday 6th of November, Physics Services open their doors for the Physics Services Open Day, for researchers in Physics and across the University.

If you think we might help your research or if you are just curious to know what goes on in them please come and see our facilities.

The services being showcased at the open day include:

Expected to be on the sky by 2020, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope system will produce a 6-band (0.3-1.1 micron) wide-field deep astronomical survey of over 18,000 deg2 of the southern sky using an 8.4 meter ground-based telescope and a 3200 megapixel camera. Each night, LSST will obtain multiple images covering a wide swath of sky visible from its location on Cerro Pachón in northern Chile. Each patch of visible sky will be visited more than 800 times during the 10-year survey. The LSST leverages innovative technology in all subsystems.
