The next UK Cosmo meeting has just been announced and will take place in Portsmouth on the 26th of June. The local website has details about how to register to attend or give a talk. There is no confirmed venue yet but keep an eye on the site for more information and travel details. The UK Cosmo meetings are always well attended, and feature a wide range of topics with researchers from all over the UK. Travel costs are subsidised by PPARC (or STFC these days) so there is no excuse for not attending!
For anyone in London or the surrounding area, the next London Cosmology Discussion Meeting will be held on the 12th of June in room E1, Physics and Astronomy building, UCL, Gower street. The line-up so far is:
Daniel Mortlock (Imperial College London) : “The UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey: The Cool And Distant Universe”
Anais Rassat (UCL) : “The 2 Micron all-sky Redshift Survey (2MRS)”
There hasn’t been an LCDM for a while and this will be the last meeting of the academic year so hopefully a good crowd will attend. Unfortunately there is something on in our department that day, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to get down to Gower Street for the meeting.
Finally, Cosmo ‘07 is being held in the University of Sussex near Brighton this year, and registration is now open. The cost depends on whether you want to stay a full week or just 3 days, and there is a reduced student rate as well. Should be an interesting meeting, and hopefully the weather will be nice in Brighton for one of the last weekends of the summer.
