Description

406. WE-HERAEUS-SEMINAR PHYSICS AT THE TERASCALE

27-30 April 2008 - Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany

Particle physics is about to enter the Terascale, the energy regime of Teraelectronvolts (TeV), opening up a new chapter in high-energy physics. With the start-up of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2008 and R&D; for the complementary International Linear Collider (ILC) in full swing, we may expect revolutionary results explaining the origin of matter, unravelling the nature of dark matter and providing glimpses of extra spatial dimensions or grand unification of forces. Any of these insights would change our view of the world and how it works dramatically.

This is the theme of the 406. WE-Heraeus-Seminar Physics at the Terascale which will take place on 27-30 April 2008 at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany. Internationally renowned speakers will give 45 minute lectures covering experimental and theoretical aspects of Terascale physics as well as related topics in particle physics. The seminar addresses itself to Ph.D. students and young postdocs working in the field. One evening during the seminar is devoted to a special student seminar where students are encouraged to present results from thir own work.

The registration fee for the 406.WE-Heraeus-Seminar is €150 including accommodation in the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef and including all meals.
