Welcome to YTF 2020! 

YTF exists to bring together postgraduate students working in theoretical physics/applied maths and encourage them to share their research. YTF 20 is a great opportunity to present your work, while also engaging and collaborating with students from different universities. 

We are very pleased to announce that this year's plenary speakers will be:

  • Prof. David Tong
  • Dr. Jessica Wade

YTF 20 will be held virtually and hosted by Durham University on two days: Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th December 2020. 

We want to make sure YTF is as inclusive as possible. Closed captions will be automatically generated for all talks, and additionally we would like to hear about your preferences and/or suggestions to make YTF better than ever!

The Call for Abstracts is now closed and we will be announcing the speaker timetable shortly.

The conference is free to attend. As this is a virtual event, you will need to bring your own biscuits and refreshments!

Topics expected to be discussed include:

  • AdS/CFT
  • Amplitudes
  • BSM
  • Black Holes
  • Conformal symmetry
  • Cosmology
  • Dark matter
  • Data science
  • Flavour physics
  • Gravity
  • Lattice
  • QCD
  • Machine learning
  • Neutrinos
  • Non-perturbative QFT
  • Pheno
  • String theory
  • Solitons
  • SUSY
