Christmas Meeting 2005/6

Manchester Particle Physics

Wednesday 4th - Friday 6th January 2006

Talks will be in the Moseley Lecture Theatre. Lunch will be provided, so remember to forget your sandwiches. Some people have more activities than talks, and can disregard the session title to do cover it all. Please plan to keep to time: there is flexibility in the schedule to allow for questions.

Would speakers please make their talks available by one of the following ways (in order of preference)
