›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, will be hosting a one day symposium on cosmology and astrophysics. Organised by Professor Øystein Elgarøy (Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo), Professor George Efstathiou FRS (Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge) and Professor Anthony Lasenby (Cavendish Laboratory and Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge), the symposium will bring together the world’s leading experts in this field.
The symposium will also include the Kavli Prize Laureate lecture by Professor Jane Luu in collaboration with the Kavli Foundation. 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.
