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.
Warwick Week will be partially in person and partially online in 2024.
The first week, from Wednesday March 20th to Wednesday March 27th, will be held in-person for those who wish to travel to Warwick. A schedule for Warwick Week 2024 can be found at WFW 2024 Timetable. There will be opportunities for social gatherings (better known as "going to the pub" and "Dinner") in this week.
We hope to provide a full online connection for all lectures for those who cannot attend in person. For those who can attend in person, the lectures will be held in room MAS2.05/2.06.
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 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. The University has installed a fully automatic ANPR system. Details of where and how to pay for parking can be found at Warwick University Parking. One can also get to Warwick from Coventry (city and/or railway station), Kenilworth and Leamington Spa using public transport. Mobility details can be found at University of Warwick Transport.
Those who are planning to come to Warwick will need to find accommodation. The University is sited between the towns of Kenilworth, Royal Leamington Spa and the city of Coventry. All have reasonable hotels and B&Bs and have public transport links to the University. In previous years many students grouped together and rented houses via AirB&B as well. The University has some possibilities at accommodation around the University of Warwick. There are also on-site conference services, which can be accessed from Warwick Conferences.
