We cordially invite you to participate in the
third "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics
and Quantum Field Theory", which will take place at the
Department of Theoretical Physics of the University of Vienna,
Boltzmanngasse 5, A-1090 Vienna, from Friday Dec. 01 to Sunday
Dec. 03, 2006.
This year, "Challenges in Particle
Phenomenology" has been chosen as subject. The
Large Hadron Collider LHC and a future linear collider will
be the main tools to probe physics at the Tera scale. In particular,
we will be able to test our ideas about elektroweak symmetry
breaking and the origin of mass. In the seminar we will cover
recent developments, both experimental and theoretical, of the
Standard Model, Higgs physics, supersymmetry, extra dimensions,
and the connection to cosmology.
The new seminar series "Vienna Central
European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory"
was created 2004 and is intended to provide stimulating interactions
between leading researchers and promising junior physicists.
We are presently in the course of inviting speakers and will
announce their names in the near future. A considerable number
of junior scientists are expected to participate in this meeting,
as we received special grants for them. Details on application
procedures and the distribution of financial resources shall
The seminar is supported by
|The Austrian Federal Ministry for Education,
Science and Culture
|The High Energy Physics Institute of the Austrian
Academy of Sciences
|The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute
of Mathematical Physics.
We are trying to create a platform for junior
scientists: Speakers are to be selected from among them, discussion
rounds and poster sessions shall be held. It is our special
intention that the innovative character of the meeting will
push forward scientific contacts and collaborations.
Moreover, the "Vienna Central European
Seminars on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory"
intends to be a forum for coordinating conferences, schools
and graduate courses in the Central European region. Please
also see the webpage http://cepgc.phy.hr/
for information on the "Central European Joint Program
of Doctoral Studies in Theoretical Physics". Nine Central
European universities and institutions have joined in a collaboration
to strengthen and develop their Ph.D. programmes.
We remain with sincere regards, yours
