The Regge limit (or the limit of high-energy scattering) was recognised long ago as one where unique insight can be gained into scattering processes, owing to a simplified effective description through new degrees of freedom in two-dimensions. Recent advances in the study of scattering amplitudes led to a resurgence in this field, with significant progress in both maximally supersymmetric Yang...

Despite a wealth of expertise in the physics of nonequilbrium systems across SUPA institutions, this is an area where collaborative work between universities has not yet reached its full potential. The purpose of this workshop is to draw together theoretical physicists at Scottish institutions working on nonequilibrium systems as they manifest themselves in different branches of physics. These...

Higgs-Maxwell workshops are a series of annual one-day meetings to discuss the current topics in theoretical and experimental particle physics and the prospects for future discoveries. The meeting is organised by the Universities of Durham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Lancaster. This year's meeting, taking place on February 8th at the...

New Directions in Theoretical Physics is a series of meetings aimed to provide a multidisciplinary setting for theoretical physicists to exchange ideas with colleagues and highlight new approaches to challenges in theoretical physics.

The January 2017 meeting will cover a broad range of topics including active matter, particle physics beyond the SM, gravitational waves,...
