Aim of the Forum
The role of elementary particles in the evolution of the Universe is well recognised.
In recent years, data from both
laboratory and space experiments have shed light on the relationship between
cosmology, gravitation and particle physics. The recent discovery of
gravitational waves has opened new experimental windows in astrophysics and
cosmology, and could give unique insights on particle physics.
In this Forum the interplay between elementary particles, gravitation and cosmology will be discussed from both the experimental and theoretical points of view. The talks are by invited speakers, with plenty of time scheduled for discussion. This should be a good occasion both for experimentalists and theorists to hold informal discussions and for young physicists to familiarise themselves with the hottest topics in high energy physics.
The Forum will feature a poster session where UK PhD students are invited to present their work. There will be a prize for the best poster.
