Higgs Couplings 2015

12. Oktober - 15. Oktober 2015

HC 2015 aims to provide a forum for both experimentalist and theorists to discuss the status of the experimental analysis and of the theoretical tools supporting them. The focus is on the current status of the Higgs boson profile and on the prospects for Run II of the LHC. In particular,

  • Mass
  • Spin / Parity
  • Couplings
  • Structure
  • BSM

are addressed in the light of the upcoming precision phase at the LHC. Theoretical implications, ranging from model-independent analyses over specific extensions of the Standard Model to more exotic modifications, will be discussed. In addition, near- and longer-term prospects at various experimental facilities will be debated.

Top 2015

14. September - 18. September 2015

The workshop will bring together the community of experimental and theoretical physicists working on top quark physics, 20 years after its first discovery, and at the beginning of the exploration of the new energy regime at the Large Hadron Collider. The workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of the latest results from the LHC and Tevatron experiments as well as the most recent theoretical developments and an outlook on top-quark physics at future colliders.

The programme will consist of plenary presentations, a Poster Session, a Young Scientists Forum and 'Question and Answers' sessions, targeted for young researchers. A significant fraction of the workshop time will be devoted to discussions.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive picture of top-quark physics and a forum where experimentalists and theorists can discuss the interpretation of top quark results and plan future measurements.

LHCP 2015 (Large Hadron Collider Physics Conference)

31. August - 5. September 2015

The LHCP2015 conference is the major international conference of the experimental collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva. This conference is a result of a recent merger of two international conferences: "Physics at Large Hadron Collider" and "Hadron Collider Physics Symposium". The first two conferences in this series were held in Barcelona, May 2013 (LHCP2013) and in New York City, June 2014 (LHCP2014).

The program will be devoted to a review of the latest experimental and theoretical results on hadron collider physics, especially the results of the new LHC Run 2, and a discussions on the outlook for the coming years. The conference intends to provide a lively discussion between experimenters and theorists on topics such as the Standard Model Physics and Beyond, the Higgs Boson, Supersymmetry and Heavy Ion Physics and planning for the high luminosity upgrades during the plenary talks, parallel and poster sessions.

EPS 2015 (European Physical Society Conference)

22. Juli - 29. Juli 2015

The European Physical Society Conference on High Energy Physics (EPS-HEP) is one of the major international conferences that reviews the field every second year since 1971 organized by the High Energy and Particle Physics Divison of the European Physical Society. The latest conferences in this series were held in Stockholm, Grenoble, Krakow, Manchester, Lisbon and Aachen.

The Conference will have parallel sessions (conveners) on the first three days and plenary sessions with invited talks giving a broad overview of the topics of the conference on the last three days (timetable). On 25 July there will be the special joint ECFA/EPS-HEPP session: Connection scales: bridging the infinites. Finally the conference will reserve plenty of space for poster contributions which can be visited throughout the conference. Dedicated poster sessions will be held to give participants the opportunity to chat with the authors.

The focus will be on the potential for precision measurements, their  role in searching for and disentangling physics beyond the Standard Model, progress in multi-loop and multi-leg calculations of  Standard Model processes, new physics cross sections, new approaches and new theoretical developments. There will also be a few  talks on more exotic theories and on the latest experimental progress.

26.-28. Mai 2015

Beim Workshop "Parton Showers, Event Generators and Resummation" kommen Forscher zusammen, die auf den Gebieten der analytischen Resummation, bzw. der Parton-Shower-Simulationen arbeiten. Dabei stehen folgende Problemstellungen im Vordergrund:

  • verschiedene Techniken zur Resummation und ihre Beziehung untereinander,
  • verschiedene Parton-Shower-Formalismen und ihre Entwicklung,
  • das Matching von Fixed-Order-Resultaten mit dem Parton-Shower,
  • der Zusammenhang zwischen analytischer Resummation und Parton-Showern.

Der Workshop setzt eine Serie von erfolgreichen Veranstaltungen in Manchester (2010), am DESY Hamburg (2009, 2012), in Durham (2013) und in Münster (2014) fort.

In diesem Jahr wird der Workshop vom Institute of Nuclear Physics Polish Academy of Sciences in Cracow (IFJ PAN) organisiert und findet in Krakau vom 26-28 Mai statt.

Zusätzlich gibt es einen weiteren Workshop mit dem Titel "Top quark differential distributions":


Der Workshop wird vom 26.-28. September 2014 ebenfalls in Cannes, Frankreich stattfinden. Bei Dem Workshop wird diskutiert wie

  • die vollständig differentiellen Verteilungen der Top-Quark-Paarproduktion in NNLO
  • der LHC-Run bei maximaler Energie

das Feld optimal voran bringen können.

Dazu werden die Expertinnen und Experten der Top-Physik und anderer relevanter Felder (Partonverteilungsfunktionen, Partonschauer, Soft-Gluon-Resummation) zusammenkommen. Einige der Adressierten Fragen sind:

  • Welche bisher noch nicht studierten Verteilungen sind von Interesse?
