New Directions in Theoretical Physics


The Higgs Centre is organising a two-and-a-half day meeting on new directions in theoretical physics in early January, 2014. The aim is to explore and discuss new directions at the frontiers of theoretical physics in a broad range of topics, including astrophysics, cosmology, condensed matter, complex sytems and particle physics. We hope to encourage an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas. The meeting will bring together international experts, many of whom are Associates or Affiliates of the Higgs Centre.

The meeting takes place immediately after the 2014 ATLAS UK physics meeting, which will be held in the same place between Monday and Wednesday. The Wednesday afternoon session will focus on the Higgs boson discovery and other developments at the LHC.

The meeting will take place in Appleton Tower at the University of Edinburgh, which is situated in the old town. It starts with lunch on Wednesday January 8th and ends after lunch on Friday January 10th. Upon arrival please come to the conference desk in the Appleton Tower concourse; the desk will open on the Wednesday at 11:00.

The Wednesday afternoon sessions are in Appleton Tower, Lecture Theatre 4.

The Thursday and Friday sessions are in Appleton Tower, Lecture Theatre 3.
