Annual Theory Meeting 2007





Collingwood College 17th-19th December

The Annual Theory Meetings ("Christmas Meetings") started in 1961 and have been held every year since (with the possible exception of two years), previously at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and more recently at Durham. Gordon Moorhouse and David Morgan have written a brief history of the early meetings.

This year, accommodation is in Collingwood College, and the lectures are in the new Wolfendale Lecture Theatre, Calman Learning Centre on the University's Science Site.

Photos from this years meeting can be found here
