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 the recent Nobel prize winners and other 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.

There is a £50 conference fee to be paid when you register. This will cover the conference dinner, lunch and coffee breaks.

The schedule of talks is here.

The complete list of talks and abstracts is here.

Registration for this meeting is now closed.

Unfortunately, due to illness we have had to cancel the Wednesday evening event Edinburgh's Enlightenment Reborn; An Audience with Higgs, Englert & Kibble.
