The IQF meetings aim to present the current year's most exciting developments in theoretical physics, internationally and within Ireland. Further aims are to cover a broad range of topics within physics, to give newly arrived and early career researchers a chance to present themselves and to reach out to the general public.

This year, the event will be jointly hosted by the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the School of Physics at University College Dublin. The meeting will run from 25th to 26th of May 2017, and will consist of two days of talks along with a public talk and conference dinner.

There is no registration fee and anyone can participate. However, please do register to give us a better idea of numbers.

There will be a public lecture, "The sound of the Universe: detecting gravitational waves in space with LISA" by Dr. Enrico Barausse, held on the evening of Thursday 25th May. The event is free to attend, but requires registration via EventBright. This event is suitable for a general audience interested in Astrophysics, Gravity and the European Space Agency.
