We cordially invite you to participate in the eigth "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory", which will take place at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna, Boltzmanngasse 5, A-1090 Vienna, from Friday November 25 to Sunday November 27, 2011. This year, Particle Physics and the LHC, has been chosen as subject.

The members of this year's scientific advisory board

Jiri Horejsi (Prague)
Helmuth Hüffel (Vienna)
Anton Rebhan (Vienna)

have chosen the following topics for the major plenary talks:


3) CMS


5) Electroweak Symmetry Breaking and New Physics for LHC
6) Flavor Physics in the LHC aera
7) QCD and Tools for LHC
8) Heavy Ion Physics
9) Particle Physics with Ultracold Neutrons
10) Cosmology and the LHC

We are delighted to announce that Nobel Laureate Frank Wilczek has accepted an invitation for the "Boltzmann-Lecture" on the afternoon of November 25. The "Boltzmann-Lecture" is organized by the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna. The lecture will be supplementary to our program.

We would like to inform you about the deadlines for all applications:

fellowships for junior scientists,
letters of recommendation


accommodation closed
poster session closed
online application form closed

More information on the application procedures will be available in the "second announcement".

The seminar series "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory" was created in 2004 and is intended to provide stimulating interactions between leading researchers and promising junior physicists. A considerable number of junior scientists participate in these meetings, and we receive special grants for them.

Furthermore, we are creating a platform for junior scientists: Speakers are selected from among them and discussion rounds are held. The innovative character of the meetings is especially important to us, and scientific contacts and collaborations are enhanced.

The "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory" serves as a forum for coordinating conferences, schools and graduate courses in the Central European region. Please 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.


The seminar is supported by

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research
The Vienna University of Technology
The Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna
The High Energy Physics Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences
The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute of Mathematical Physics
The Vienna Convention Bureau.

With my very best regards from Vienna, 

Helmuth Hüffel, organizer
