Ultra-Mini Workshops on Phenomenology
Phenomenology and Statistics
University of Wisonsin, Madison - April 30 to May 4, 2007
Edinburgh pheno on tour! This time we are going to meet in beautiful Madison/WI the week before Pheno07 to discuss statistics and matrix element methods with experimental and phenomenological colleagues from Tevatron and LHC. What could be a better example for active exchange between Scotland and for example the U.S. on cutting-edge topics.
The idea of ultra-minis is simple and still the same: we lock up a good handful of bright people who are interested in the topic - and young enough to calculate things - in a room for a week. We hope that by the time we open the door in the evening and head out to the terrace many cool ideas will have emerged and been discussed. LHC phenomenology is a pressing and exciting topic with groups scattered around the world, let's establish new links and life-long friendships!
We should acknowledge that the idea of ultra-minis has been stolen from Graham Kribs in Oregon, so in a way you might call this the Ultra-mini #6, after workshops in fall 05, winter 06, spring 06, fall 06. spring 07.
The external participants for this third Scottish ultra-mini on tour are:
