Workshops, Conferences and Symposia organized by Members of the Particle Physics Group


24-29 September 2017 St. Gilgen

The main theme of the conference is the application of quantum field theory calculations to particle physics phenomenology focused on making high-precision predictions in the high-energy regime covering collider and flavor physics relevant for the LHC era and experiments in the future. Recent developments in theoretical studies of radiative corrections in the framework of the Standard Model and its extensions will be discussed as well as how these results impact the interpretation of available experimental data. Along with this, recent computer-algebraic, combinatorial and mathematical innovations to perform these calculations will be discussed.

EPS-HEP 2015

22. - 29. July 2015

The European Physical Society Conference on High Energy Physics (EPS-HEP) is one of the major international conferences that reviews the field every second year since 1971 organized by the High Energy and Particle Physics Divison of the European Physical Society.

In 2015 the EPS-HEP will take place in Vienna, Austria between 22 to 29 July. The conference 2015 is organized by the Institute of High Energy Physics (HEPHY) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Vienna, Vienna University of Technology and the Stefan-Meyer Institute (SMI) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.

Advances and future of fundamental problems of quantum physics studied at different energies

When? 26. - 27. Februar 2015

Where? Vienna, AIRO hotel, few minutes away from the thermal spa "Oberlaa: THERME WIEN"

Why? This workshop will bring together theoreticians and experimenters working on hot topics of fundamental problems of quantum theory belonging to different domains in physics, i.e. on physical systems at different energy scales.

10th Vienna Central European Seminar

November 28 - November 29 2014

After a break of one year this seminar series is continued under the auspices of the Doctoral Program "Particles and Interactions."

This year the topic of new developments in cosmology, inflation and dark matter has been chosen. The talks address the status of cosmological models and discuss possible dark matter candidates from theoretical and experimental perspectives.

CKM 2014

Das International Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle (CKM2014) findet von Montag, 8. bis Freitag 12.September 2014 an der Fakultät für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik der Technischen Universität Wien statt.

Die CKM-Serie ist eine gut etablierte Treffen im Bereich der Quark-Flavour Physik und bietet einen Ort sowohl für Experimental- als auch für theoretische Physiker. Auf der experimentellen Seite überbrücken wir die Grenzen zwischen Neutronen-, Kaon-, Charme- und B-Meson-Physik. Das Theorie-Programm versucht, ein breites Spektrum von Ansätzen abzudecken. Wir werden diskutieren, wie die Kombination von Experiment und Theorie die Suche nach Physik jenseits des Standardmodells ermöglichen kann und betrachten das Wechselspiel zwischen dem Quark-Flavour-Feld und der High-pT Suche nach neuer Physik.

Ähnlich wie in früheren Ausgaben, wird das Workshop ein Höhepunkt der Bemühungen der verschiedenen Arbeitsgruppen sein. Es wird auch zum Eröffnungs- und Zusammenfassung-Plenarsitzungen geben.

ESI Program on Jets and Quantum Fields for LHC and Future Colliders

Jets are one of the most common objects observed in high energy particle collider experiments. They consist of a number very energetic collimated stable hadrons and their distribution and shape can be used to learn about the high-energy process that took place when the initial particles collided. A good understanding of jets is the basis of carrying out measurements at all modern collider experiments such as the Large-Hadron-Collider (LHC) currently taking data at CERN, at B-factories or a future Linear Collider. The intention of the workshop is to have an "Aspen"-type meeting with physicists having a strong theoretical interests in both conceptual and phenomenological aspects of jets.

Workshop on Precision Measurements of alpha_S

9-11 February 2011
Max Planck Institut für Physik

The idea of this workshop at MPI für Physik is to explore and discuss in depth the determinations of alpha_S(m_Z) in the MSbar scheme from all the key categories where high precision measurements are currently being made. Since alpha_S is important for certain LHC measurements and since there are discrepancies in some determinations, such a workshop certainly seems in order.
