Effective Field Theories in Physics
This two-day student led workshop in collaboration with the South East Physics Network (SEPnet) aims to provide an opportunity for early career researchers in theoretical physics to come together under the EFT umbrella and share their ideas. There should be an informal atmosphere with plenty of opportunity for students to consult their more experienced peers on the technical issues that are often left out of research papers.
Students and PDRAs are invited to submit abstracts for short talks and posters.
When – Sunday 10th to Tuesday, 12th January 2016
Where – Woolf College, University of Kent, Canterbury (Directions)
How Much – Free!*
Accommodation: Premier Inn Canterbury City Centre (Directions). Arrival from 18:00 on Sunday evening.
Abstract Submission Deadline – Friday 6th Nov 15
Registration Deadline – Monday 30th Nov 15
Please submit your talk and/or poster abstracts with this Google Form. We will let you know if your abstract(s) have been accepted by Friday 20th Nov.
