OPEN INVITATION - NuSec Funded Research Projects Workshop
Tuesday 11 October 2022, 9:30am – 1:00pm
Institute of Physics (IoP), 37 Caledonian Road London N1 9BU
This workshop will provide an opportunity to hear and discuss the latest research findings from NuSec funded, detection method and technology projects.
We are also intending to launch a Call for NuSec 2023 UK-US Collaboration Grant Applications and an AWE Sigma Data Challenge.
Short presentations will be followed by Q&As with attendees.
A summary of proposed research topics can be viewed in the Agenda Tab below.
You are warmly invited to attend this free workshop either in person or online only now, as room capacity has now been reached.
Advance registration is required to attend. Please register your attendance by 17:00, 5th October 2022 . Online Registrations have now closed.
