Annual Theory Meeting & STFC Town Meeting

Valya Khoze (IPPP)
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. This year, accommodation is in Collingwood College, and the lectures are in the Appleby Lecture Theatre on the University's Science Site. Note that the allocated time includes discussion periods - 15 minutes for 1 hour slots and 30 minutes for the 1'30 hour slots.
