Announcement - Workshop on discovery physics at the LHC, Kruger National Park, South Africa

South Africa’s oldest national park is famous for its large populations of the “Big Five” large mammals — 1,500 lion, 12,000 elephant, 2,500 buffalo, 1,000 leopards and 5,000 rhino. Image courtesy Kruger National Park

The early registration deadline is 31 August for Kruger 2010: Workshop on Discovery Physics at the LHC, to be held at the Protea Hotel Kruger Gate, Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa.

The workshop itself will be held 5-10 December, where it will include discussions on the latest Monte Carlo tools, cross-section calculations for signal and background processes to higher orders, as well as strategies for new physics searches are expected.

The status of the CERN Large Hadron Collider,
along with first measurements from the LHC
experiments, will also be presented.

Amidst the surroundings of one of the worldʼs largest national parks, the physics results presented during  this workshop will serve to inspire discussions between theorists and experimentalists on the latest LHC and Tevatron measurements as well as our  expectations for the future.

The scientific program, social program, list of speakers and other items will be posted here. Full travel and conference bursaries available for students; see the website for details.
