The ICG will be hosting the next South Coast Cosmology meeting on 16th January 2019 in Lecture Theatre 3, Richmond Building (see https://www.port.ac.uk/about-us/maps-and-directions for travel information, Richmond is labelled 6 on the map).
Registration is via this online form. Participants are welcome to submit abstracts for talks, and we especially encourage PhD students to do so as this meeting will provide a relaxed environment in which to give a talk.
The deadline for abstract submission is 12th December 2018, and the deadline for registration is 8th January 2019.
Registration is now closed. Please see below for the schedule.
