Harley Wood Winter School
This year, the Harley Wood Winter School will be catching a ride in the DeLorean! Multi-messenger astrophysics is the key: expert speakers will drive us across multiple wavelength domains (including neutrino and gravitational wave astronomy) while connecting their talk not only to our understanding of the chronological history of the Universe but also to the evolution of astronomy and astrophysics here in Australia.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have a cohesive picture of the evolution of the universe over cosmic time, as well as a picture of how Australian astronomy has developed from Indigenous traditional understanding of the night sky to its most recent exploration.
The Harley Wood Winter School will be held on Thursday 6 - Sunday 9 July (leaving the afternoon of Sunday 9 July) at the ANU Kioloa Coastal Campus.
The Kioloa Coastal Campus of the ANU offers accommodation and research facilities at a unique location, extending from the high tide mark through a diverse ecology to thick bushland. This 348 hectare field station, now one of Australia's premier field stations, was estabilshed through the generosity of former owner Joy London, as The Edith and Joy London foundation in honour of her mother, Edith. The field station is situated on the NSW south coast between Kioloa and Bawly Point villages, easily accesible from Canberra, Sydney and Wollongong.
