Warwick Week

Warwick Week is a week of graduate lectures hosted at the University of Warwick. It focuses on topics which are relevant to the experiments that UK graduate students are currently involved with and aims to present the theory behind these experiments, and to put the experiments in context in the current research landscape.

Due to the Covid-19 public health pandemic, Warwick Week will move to an online format for 2021. It will be held over two weeks, from Monday May 17th to Friday May 28th, with lectures held only in the mornings from 09:00 - 13:00, with the exception of May 24/25 where a short lecture course on Beam Physics extends into the afternoon. There will be two lectures per day with as much time as possible devoted to Q&A. A Q&A session with all lecturers will be held at the end of each week.

Lectures given are

  • Heavy Flavour Physics : Matt Kenzie (Warwick)
  • Neutrino Physics : Steve Boyd (Warwick)
  • High-Pt Physics : Juraj Bracinic and Andy Chisholm (Birmingham)
  • Astroparticle Physics : Matthew Malek (Sheffield)
  • Detector techniques : Antonis Papanestis (STFC RAL) and Mika Vesterinen (Warwick)
  • Beam Physics : Chris Rogers (STFC RAL)
  • Summaries of lecture content and background reading can be found in the Background Reading page.

We expect students from the University of Birmingham, the University of Bristol, the University of Lancaster, the University of Liverpool, the University of Sheffield, and, of course, the University of Warwick

Travel details (Ignore this for 2021)

Travel details can be found here. Different options are available depending on where you stay. In previous years most students drove to Warwick. There are a number of car parks available which charge up to 4.50 pounds a day. Parking space have been reserved for those who requested them. To find the reserved spaces lot :

On arrival at the University of Warwick, follow the highway signs to Central Campus.

 Once there, follow the “Reserved Visitor Parking” signs, to where your space is reserved. Ignore any “Central Campus Parking FULL” signs you see – they don’t apply to reserved visitors.

 Physics is just a few minutes’ walk from the reserved visitor parking.
