From Planets to Dark Energy: the Modern Radio Universe

October 1-5 2007
The University of Manchester, UK

This meeting will focus on the current state of knowledge, as revealed by observations and theory, of the key science themes to be addressed by the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).

The SKA will have of the order of a million square metres of collecting area and will achieve a spatial resolution better than 0.1 arcsecond at 1.4 GHz. With such a telescope, some of the major questions of our time can be addressed.
What are dark energy and dark matter? What is the origin of the observed structure in the Universe? How did planets like the Earth form?
