04.09.2017 to 05.09.2017
Organisers:
Dr. Claudia Lederer-Woods, Prof. Alex Murphy, Dr. Raphael Hirschi
Venue:

The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics

Key Speakers:

Stars are the “Cauldrons in our cosmos“ being responsible for creating all of the chemical elements from carbon onwards. The elemental abundances we observe today in our solar system are a result of many different nucleosynthesis processes taking place in various kinds of stars and phases of stellar evolution, over billions of years. To understand how our universe evolved chemically, and...

11.12.2017 to 13.12.2017
Organisers:
Greig Cowan, Matthew Needham, Mikhail Bashkanov, Daniel Watts, Alex Lenz
Venue:

Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics

Key Speakers:

The aim of the workshop is to bring together the nuclear and particle physics communities to discuss experimental searches for exotic hadronic resonances (tetra, penta, hexaquarks etc); the latest data analysis methods used; the theoretical interpretation of these states and the potential for future searches at current experimental facilities (CERN, JLab, Mainz). It is hoped that this workshop...

09.04.2018 to 12.04.2018
Organisers:
Vittorio del Duca (ETH Zurich and INFN), Lorenzo Magnea (Turin U. and INFN), Einan Gardi (Edinburgh)
Venue:

Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, JCMB, Edinburgh

Key Speakers:

Precise theoretical predictions for LHC observables are a crucial pre-requisite for the discovery of new physics. Such predictions require high-order perturbative calculations in the Standard Model, most notably in QCD. A key step in these calculations is the cancellation of infrared divergences, which arise from exchanges of virtual partons and from the integration over undetected real...
