18 Apr 2012 - 9:00am to 6:00pm

An annual interdisciplinary forum to bring together physicists, chemists, materials scientists and theoreticians in and around Oxford to advance the science and promote direct collaboration between groups interested in novel quantum materials and phenomena.

29 Mar 2012 - 2:00pm to 30 Mar 2012 - 4:00pm

The aim of this meeting is to discuss recent developments concerning searches for dark matter, as well as relevant astrophysical issues and particle phenomenology. On Thursday 29th March there will be a Half-day Meeting (2-6 pm) to take stock of the field, while Friday 30th March will be devoted to a Workshop (9 am-4 pm) concerning both theory and experiment.

19 Mar 2012 - 11:00am to 20 Mar 2012 - 3:30pm

The next bi-annual meeting of UK participants in the Cherenkov Telescope Array project will take place in the Denys Wilkinson Building, Department of Physics, University of Oxford, on 19th and 20th March 2012. We will have one day of science-themed talks and one day of technical-themed talks with plenty of time for interactive discussions.

Younger members of the collaboration, and Oxford physics department members with interests in high-energy astrophysics, astroparticle physics, electronics, and telescope design and construction, are particularly encouraged to attend.

4 Jan 2012 (All day) to 8 Jan 2012 (All day)

The UK-Japan Winter Schools have been held since 1999. Every year the focus is on a special topic. The aim of the School is to bring together Japanese and UK scientists, in particular young researchers and students from mathematics and mathematical physics, in a relaxing and stimulating atmosphere.

The 2012 School is devoted to geometry, mathematical physics and mathematical aspects of string theory. As in the previous UK-Japan Schools, there will be three main lecture courses as well as five one-hour review lectures from the experts in the field.

30 Sep 2011 - 9:00am to 5:30pm

We are planning to honour Graham on his formal retirement from Oxford by holding a day meeting on Friday 30 September at which his longstanding collaborators will be invited to discuss his major contributions to our field with a historical perspective.

On Friday the programme will start at 9 am and end at 5.30 pm, in the Dennis Sciama Lecture Theatre, Denys Wilkinson Building followed by a reception until 7pm.

22 Jun 2011 - 4:30pm
