Kavli IPMU
School on the Future of Collider Physics

Kavli IPMU, The University of Tokyo
16 - 19 July 2013

After the great discovery of the Higgs boson at the early stage of the LHC, the later runs at 13 (14) TeV are expected to not only measure the Higgs boson properties more accurately, but also to shed light on possible new physics at the TeV scale. The upgrade of the LHC would therefore be an important issue that should be discussed now. Furthermore, there are increasing interests on the possibility to have a linear collider motivated by the Higgs discovery. The aim of this school is to provide lectures on topics in collider physics which will be important not only during the 13 (14) TeV LHC, but also in the expected future high luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) and linear collider experiments such as the International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC). The school will consist of six lectures focusing on theoretical aspects and five lectures devoted to accelerator and detector aspects. The participants will also have the opportunity to present their work through poster presentations.

Applications, travel and other information

Applications must be received by 31 May 2013. Applications are particularly encouraged from women and other under-represented sections of the community. Please note that enrollment will be limited to 60 participants.

There is no registration fee but accommodation will be booked at a downtown hotel at a cost to participants of approximately US$60 per night. Lunches at economical prices will be taken at the University of Tokyo's campus cafeteria. A limited number of bursaries will be available to cover local costs for participants in financial need. The application form as well as further information about the School and Workshop can be obtained from the indico server.
