Useful Information

YTF will begin on Wednesday 10th January, immediately after YETI (Young Experimentalists and Theorists Institute) 2018 conference. The talks will be 10 and 20 minutes in length followed by a 5 minutes session for questions. Talks will be collected into parallel sessions with a common theme and will be separated by tea/coffee breaks.


Registration is now open: please follow this link. You will need an Indico account to register and submit an abstract for your talk. If you are visiting us for the first time, you can follow the instructions on the registration page to create an account. Someone from the YTF team will need to approve your account manually before you can register, and we promise to get on with it as soon as possible. Having an account will make it easier for you to upload your abstracts. Registration closes on Friday, December 15, 2018.


The venue for YTF will be shared between the Department of Mathematical Sciences and Department of Physics. Registration will take place in Room CM107 in the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Talks on both days will take place in the Department of Mathematical Sciences rooms CM101 and CM107, and we will assemble in rooms CM103 and CM105 during the coffee breaks. Poster and pizza session on the first day and lunch on the second day will take place in Bransden Room in the Department of Physics.


We expect to be able to fund accommodation for all YTF attendees. If this isn't possible, we'll allocate rooms on a first-come first-served basis, with priority given to speakers. If you register too late to qualify for free accommodation, we'll get in touch.

If you are also attending YETI, please make sure that you register for YETI independently on their website. We'll liaise with the YETI team to ensure that YTF attendees who have also registered for YETI get accommodation for the duration of both.
