IoP 2021 - Joint APP/HEPP/NP Conference

Remote (Edinburgh)




A combined annual meeting of the IOP Astroparticle Physics Group, the High Energy Particle Physics Group and the Nuclear Physics Group organised by the University of Edinburgh.

From 12-15 April 2021, the Institute of Physics will be bringing together the UK Nuclear Physics, High Energy Particle Physics and Astroparticle Physics communities for a joint annual conference. 

Due to the ongoing Covid situation, this meeting will be delivered in an entirely online format. The meeting will feature keynote and invited talks from major national and international speakers, as well as extensive opportunities for contributed talks. Poster sessions will be presented using a virtual environment to promote social interaction, and updates and discussions with senior members of the Science and Technology Facilities Council will be provided at a Town Meeting.

Gathertown will be used for poster sessions and break
