Second Quantum Universe Symposium
The second 'Quantum Universe' (QU2) symposium will take place on Wednesday April 4 and Thursday April 5 2012, i.e. the week before Easter, at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands.
The event is part of the new track The Quantum Universe of the Physics and Astronomy Master programmes, a collaboration between the Centre for Theoretical Physics (CTN), the Kapteyn Astronomical Institute, the Kernfysisch Versneller Instituut (KVI) and the Johann Bernoulli Institute (JBI). The aim of the symposium is to present new developments, both theoretical and experimental, in (astro-)particle physics and astronomy and to stimulate interactions between the different institutes.
