UK Meeting 2021

The 2021 Euclid UK meeting will be held online on December 15 and 16, 2021. The meeting will be open to all Euclid Consortium members.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together the UK Euclid community and discuss the mission and the broad range of science that Euclid will enable. There will be updates on the mission and primary science development status, and presentations on the on-going research and preparation by Euclid Consortium members at all career stages.

Registration & Talks

Registration and abstract submission are now open, please use this form to sign up.

There will be a limited number of contributed talks of 10+5 minutes, with preference for early-career researchers. Talks submitted before November 30th will be given full consideration.
