Ultra-Mini Workshops on Phenomenology

Dark Matter and the LHC

The University of Edinburgh - November 19 to November 23, 2007


The Edinburgh and Glasgow pheno groups have again received SUPA funding to organize the second in a series of ultra-mini workshops. These workshops on high-energy phenomenology should trigger scientific exchange between Scotland and the U.S. or continental Europe or England on all levels - from established faculty members to postdocs and graduate students. The only condition is that all participants have to be willing and able to do work themselves when put in front of their laptops.

The idea is simple: 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 pub 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: fall 05, winter 06, spring 06.

The external participants for this fourth Scottish ultra-mini are:
Laura Covi (DESY) (journal club speaker)
Dan Hooper (Fermilab)
Matt Reece (Cornell)
Tim Tait (Argonne and Northwestern) (seminar speaker)
Arne Weber (MPI for Physics)

All talks will be posted on time and will be broadcast to Glasgow. Let's rock'n'roll!
