10th Anniversary

YTF 10

Centre for Particle Theory, Durham University

10 - 12 January 2018

And we are back! Welcome to the tenth anniversary edition of YTF taking place at Durham University on January 10-12, 2018. To spice things up, this year we are bringing in two captivating plenary speakers: Prof. John Ellis from KCL and Dr. Silke Weinfurtner from Nottingham. We are also adding an additional day to YTF making it a 3-day event, meaning all the more opportunities for us to share our research. May the (grand unified) force be with us!

Registration is now open! Register Now If you are interested in sharing your work, we are already accepting abstracts for talks and posters. The best posters in the conference will be awarded with exciting prizes. Hurry up! Deadline for registration and abstract submission is Friday, December 15, 2017. You will need an Indico account to register and submit your abstract; more on that here.

YTF brings together postgraduate students working in theoretical physics from all over the UK, providing them with the opportunity to present their work to a friendly audience. Our aim is to foster development of early career researchers and encourage collaboration between different universities. Topics to be discussed in YTF include:

  • Beyond Standard Model Physics
  • String Phenomenology
  • Holography
  • Cosmology
  • Amplitudes
  • Solitons
  • Standard Model Phenomenology
  • String Theory
  • QCD
  • Gravity

YTF is being organized in association with YETI (Young Experimentalists and Theorists Institute) school, which is being organised berween January 07-10, 2018 (find more information at YETI website).

More details on the logistics are available here. A tentative shedule of the conference is now available here. A detailed schedule will be made available shortly after the registration closes.
