Conferences 2007

Some conferences/workshops on physics beyond the standard model this year:


  • CTP 2007 Symposiun on Sypersymmetry at LHC
    At the British University in Egypt
    March 11-14 2007
    (Deadline: March 1st)
    'The main theme of the conference is theoretical, phenomenological and experimental aspects of the following physics topics: Higgs [...] CP Violation [...] B-Physics [...] SUSY and Extra Dimensions searches at LHC [...] Supersymmetric theories, Supergravity theories and M-theory, Branes Physics and supersymmetry [...] '


  • String Pheno '07
    Rome, Italy
    June 4-8 2007
    'The conference aim at bringing together experts in String Theory, Particle Physics, Cosmology and Mathematical Physics, thus providing an occasion of very fruitful interactions that can spur significant steps forward in all these fields.'


  • From Quantum to Emergent Gravity: Theory and Phenomenology
    SISSA, Trieste, ITALY
    11th-15th June 2007
    'In recent times there has been a flourishing of ideas and proposals on how to test mesoscopic (high-energy but still sub-Planckian) effects of different QG scenarios. This field of research goes under the general heading of QG phenomenology. It provides ways to put constraints on possible QG effects (for example departures from Lorentz invariance) but also stimulates new conjectures about the nature of the spacetime fabric and its behaviour near the Planck scale. In particular a key question is to understand how General Relativity arises at low energy from theories of QG.'


  • Planck '07
    From the Planck Scale to the Electroweak Scale
    Warsaw, Poland
    June 9 - 13, 2007
    'With the LHC era starting soon, the meeting will mainly be devoted to physics beyond the Standard Model and to the interface of particle physics and cosmology.'


  • LOOPS '07
    Morelia, Mexico:
    25 - 30 June 2007
    'As in previous years, the conference is meant to provide the main international event on quantum gravity with emphasis on non-perturbative and background independent approaches.'


  • Les Houches - Session LXXXVII
    String theory and the real world - From particle physics to astrophysics
    July 2 - July 27, 2007
    (Deadline: May 2nd)
    '[...] does string theory describe our Universe? In this school, we will discuss the near term prospects for getting evidence for or against this claim, from experiments in particle and gravitational physics, and from astronomical and cosmological observations.'


  • SUSY 2007
    The 15th International Conference on Supersymmetryand the Unification of Fundamental Interactions
    Karlsruhe, Germany
    July 26 - August 1, 2007
    'Since their inception in 1993, the SUSY conferences have become the largest annual international meetings devoted to new ideas in particle physics.'


  • Cargèse Summer School
    Cosmology and Particle Physics Beyond the Standard Models
    July 30 - August 11, 2007
    Cargèse, Corsica, France
    'High energy theorists have been working on various extensions of the Standard Model like Supersymmetry, Grand Unified Theories, theories with extra dimensions. The next generation of particle physics experiments (LHC, neutrino superbeams, B factories...) and astroparticles/cosmology experiments (Auger, Planck, Snap, Lisa... ) will offer the possibility to test these theories and deepen our understanding of the fundamental laws. A very challenging era is awaiting us.'


  • BSM THEORY INSTITUTE - New Physics and the LHC
    CERN, Geneva
    August 13th - September 7th
    'The aim of this Institute devoted to physics beyond the Standard Model is to gather model-builders, string theorists and collider phenomologists to prepare for the turn on of LHC.'


  • TeV Particle Astrophysics 2007
    27-31 August 2007
    Venice, Italy
    'The aim of the workshop is to understand what we can learn from present and upcoming experiments at the TeV scale and above, and what are the prospects for discovering and understanding new physics with accelerator and astrophysical searches.'

Hi Christine,

Thanks! I'm not listing Cosmology Conferences, but I'll add the Summer School. Best,

B.

Christine said...

Hi Bee,

Right! Which of those are you planning to attend?

Best,
Christine

Bee said...

Hi Christine,

not completely sure yet... Definitely Loops and SUSY, the others I don't know. If I go there, I'll report on it :-) Best,

B.

Hi Bee,

well you've got the loops, but don't
you need the stuff loops are made of?

STRINGS.07
June 25-29, 2007
Strings conference 2007
Madrid, Spain

cheers,

Amusing that Strings '07 and Loops '07 are being held simultaneously, on the same days, on opposite sides of the Atlantic. (June 25-30, June 25-29)
