Events

There will be evening events on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday Evening, as well as a schools event during the day on Wednesday. All evening events will be from 6pm and end at 8pm so that it is not too late for your evening meals (these are at your own arrangements). There is no conference dinner.

MONDAY: Conference Reception

The conference reception will be in the Jeffery Hall on Level 1 (at the level of the foyer and main auditorium). There will be welcome drinks and canapés.

TUESDAY: Public Evening (includes Consortium)

This event is in the main Logan Hall Auditorium on Level 1 and is in two halves each lasting about an hour:

1) Prof Lucie Green (Mullard Space Science Lab, University College London) will compere 3 young Euclideans giving brief (10 min) presentations about dark energy and dark matter, and their work to understand it, followed by Q&A.

2) Dr Dida Markovič (University of Portsmouth) will present a production called “Entropy – an immersive cosmic journey that tells the epic life story of the universe and its stars” which is a narrative with music and images, with high production values.

The event is open to the wider public and free, so you may like to publicise this to others who may be interested, especially if you are local. We hope you may enjoy this event as a Euclid Conference attendee, and in order to know how many conference attendees there will be, please take a moment to register. Tickets for both the public and Consortium members can be booked here and ticketing is open now.

WEDNESDAY: Consortium Evening (includes invited public)

This event is in the main Logan Hall Auditorium on Level 1. It will consist of a dialog, or presentations taking us beyond the daily work on Euclid to consider some of the broader issues facing cosmology, especially in the 100th anniversary year of Lambda.

We plan to open the event to university staff and students outside the Consortium. The event is again free, and ticketing is available from 18:00 on 12 May. It would be helpful if you could register for this in advance of the meeting.

Note for Conference Attendees

Any registered conference attendees do not need to print out a ticket for these events. While you still need to book, when you arrive at the event you can simply present your conference badge to gain entry.
