The conference will be held in July 2017 at the University of Birmingham, organised in partnership with the Institute of Physics (IOP) and the Universities of Nottingham and Warwick. Having all been awarded Juno Champion status by IOP, the three universities' physics departments are strongly committed to promoting diversity and look forward to being fully involved in the conference.

News Nuclear Engineering Students visit Xiamen for Clean Energy Summer School DescriptionFour Nuclear Engineering students visited Xiamen, China, in June to participate in the Clean Energy Science and Technology Summer School. Triangulating Carbon-12 DescriptionInvestigations performed by members of the nuclear physics group at the MC40 cyclotron in Birmingham have uncovered a resonance at high-energy, the properties of which suggest that the protons and neutrons are clustered into three alpha particles arranged at the vertices of an equilateral triangle. This is the first time such a symmetry has been observed in nuclei and also a significant step into finally revealing the long sought after structure of the Hoyle state – the nuclear gateway for the synthesis of all heavier elements in the stars. Professor Yvonne Elsworth featured on BBC Radio Four's 'In our time' DescriptionHow was the Sun formed, and what do we know about its structure and the processes going on inside our nearest star?

DescriptionProfessor Martin Freer's paper 'Carbon-12 Caught in a Triangle' featured in the high profile American Physics Society Journal. New Staff in Physics & Astronomy, March - July 2014 DescriptionA round-up of new Physics and Astronomy staff members March - July 2014 Small nuclear reactors may be the key to a low-carbon future DescriptionTake a hard look at the painful process of de-carbonising the UK's electricity supply, and it's clear that the options on the table are not great. Dr Elizabeth Blackburn receives early career award from Institute of Physics DescriptionThe Institute of Physics announced its 2014 award winners. Dr Elizabeth Blackburn, Reader in Experimental Physics, was awarded the Moseley medal for distinguished early career research in experimental physics. Birmingham goes 'Beyond the Boson' at the Royal Society DescriptionScientists from the University of Birmingham are showcasing ground breaking research into the Higgs boson at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2014. School of Physics leads the way on gender equality DescriptionThe School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham has become the tenth Juno Champion after displaying its determination and commitment to addressing gender inequities across its whole student and staff body. Making Mini Big Bangs at the Large Hadron Collider DescriptionMuch has been made of the discovery of the Higgs boson – the elementary particle pivotal to the Standard Model of physics – and rightly so. Yet the so-called 'God particle', hypothesised for so long and finally confirmed in 2012, is responsible for only one per cent of the mass of the visible universe. The other 99 per cent is due to the Strong Force.Professor David Evans, School of Physics and Astronomy, talks about his work at the Large Hadron Collider.
