Frontiers in Astronomy: from the beginning of the Universe to the outer reaches of the Solar System

The Royal Society, in partnership with The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters and the Kavli Foundation, will be hosting a one day symposium on cosmology and astrophysics, Frontiers in Astronomy: from the beginning of the Universe to the outer reaches of the Solar System. Organised by Professor Øystein Elgarøy (Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo), Professor Anthony Lasenby (University of Cambridge) and Professor George Efstathiou FRS (Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge) the symposium will bring together the world’s leading experts in this field.
 
The symposium will also include a lecture by Professor Jane Luu. Professor Jane Luu was awarded the 2012 Kavli Prize and the 2012 Shaw Prize alongside Professor David Jewitt for the discovery and characterisation of objects in the Kuiper Belt, a region beyond Neptune’s orbit.  This lecture will be broadcast live.

This event is intended for researchers in relevant fields and is free to attend.  There are a limited number of places and registration is essential.
