Sydney meeting May 2019


The Sydney particle physics and cosmology meeting will take place in room SNH3003 in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub at the University of Sydney on Friday 3 May 2019. It is organised by the particle physics group at the University of Sydney and the particle physics and cosmology group at UNSW Sydney.


For the record and to allow further discussion we are listing below the list of attendants. Students and postdocs are grouped together with their respective supervisor (in case of joint supervision, they are listed multiple times).
