General event

SUPA: Young Theorists' Forum

  • Event time: Starts on 19th December 2012. Runs until 20th December 2012
  • Event dates: 19th December 2012 to 20th December 2012

Event details

The Young Theorists' Forum (YTF) brings together postgraduate students working in theoretical physics, providing the opportunity to present their work to a sympathetic audience. Our aim is to foster development of early career researchers and encourage collaboration between different universities.

We invite participants to speak on:

  • Amplitudes
  • BSM
  • Gravity and Cosmology
  • Lattice Field Theory
  • Solitons, 2D and Conformal Field Theories
  • Standard Model Phenomenology
  • Strings and M-theory

This list is not exhaustive and speakers from other areas are also welcomed. A poster session will also take place, so students electing not to give a talk might want to consider presenting a poster as an alternative.

Postgraduates working in theoretical physics, from the UK or further abroad, are encouraged to apply. We anticipate being able to fund accommodation for the majority of attendees, with priority given to speakers if demand is exceptionally high.

Annual Theory Meeting

Historically, students attending YTF are also expected to attend the Annual Theory Meeting which will this year occur before YTF, from 17-19 December. Those attending the ATM may be reimbursed for their travel. NB: places at the ATM are limited - ask around your department!

Application submission

Applications should be submitted via the workshop website.

Our General events include one-off events and lectures that are hosted by, or are of relevance to, the School of Physics and Astronomy..
