Southern Universities Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group Meeting 2018:
The 2018 meeting of the Southern Universities Spectroscopy and Dynamics Group (SUSDG) will be convened at Cardiff University across the Thursday 23rd-Friday 24th of August, hosted by the Beames group. This meeting continues the tradition of providing an opportunity for all young researchers in our field to present a short talk on their work within a friendly atmosphere. Participation is not limited to the Southern Universities. The programme will foster interaction with students and postdocs. Senior academics are welcome to attend. Given the student focus of this meeting, we aim to accept all student and postdoc talks. There will be an informal conference dinner on the Thursday evening, and a tour of Cardiff Castle will be arranged should there be enough interest.
