IIT Physics Hosts 2013 International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics
The International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics (ISMD) is a major international high-energy conference that attracts participants (theorists and experimentalists) with a common interest in reactions involving a large number of particles. The XLIII International Symposium on Multiparticle Dynamics will be held September 15 to 20, 2013, by the HEP ANL division together with the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT, Chicago) and Northwestern University (Chicago).
The goal is to provide a truly international forum for discussion and presentations of recent experimental results from the LHC, Tevatron and other experiments as well as new developments in theory. ISMD symposiums typically involve about 120 participants and include about 60-70 plenary presentations with a good balance between experimental and theoretical talks spread over five and a half days.
The symposium will comprise several sessions, with each session started by an overview talk and followed by topical contributions. The following sessions are planned: "High-pT QCD," "High-pT Electroweak Physics" (including Higgs), "Soft QCD," "Diffraction" and "Heavy-Ion Collisions." Special session will be held with overview talks on the "Intensity Frontier" and Snowmass2013.
IIT Physics: Global Reach at a Human Scale
Illinois Institute of Technology Department of Physics offers students all the advantages of a small, private school but with global reach. It gives students a rigorous, academically demanding education that is relevant and grounded in real-world experience. It also gives students personal attention and the opportunity to do important research as early as their sophomore year. The faculty works and conducts research all over the world, including CERN, the world's largest particle physics laboratory, and world-class facilities near Chicago such as Argonne National Laboratory. APS TV introduces you to a university that provides a top-notch education, research opportunities along with one-on-one attention.
