Agregar a calendario 2006-06-22 09:00:00 2006-06-25 17:00:00 Galapagos World Summit on “Physics Beyond the Standard Model" When: 22 (Thursday), 23, 24 and 25, June 2006. Unless you are taking a tour, please arrive at Quito by June 20. The flight to Galapagos is on the 21st. The flight from Galapagos to Quito is on June 26 PM. Where: Galapagos Institute for the Arts and Sciences (GAIAS), Univer- sidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ), 1 San Cristobal island, Galapagos. Purpose: We hope the Galapagos meeting will be to Particle Physics what the Copenhagen meeting was to Quantum Mechanics. A new paradigm lies beyond the Standard Model. The clues hide in experiment (high pT searches, precision measurements, rare decays, neutrinos, cosmology, astrophysics, cos­mic rays) and in a multitude of theoretical ideas. Let us advance the solution of the puzzle! The success of the Galapagos World Summit on Physics Beyond the Stan­dard Model will be judged by the QUALITY OF ORIGINAL IDEAS coming from this meeting. We hope to learn the latest experimental results and dis­cuss our new creative and original theoretical ideas anchored on phenomenol­ogy. I hope we can pin down the viable extensions to the Standard Model and understand their experimental consequences. That is our goal. This meeting is not a school: it is a workshop. We encourage all attendees, speakers, graduate students and participants, to play an ACTIVE role at the meeting. Please bring your ideas! Speakers are encouraged to contribute a chapter to the book (described below). Graduate students and participants may also contribute to the book (with prior coordination with the editor). If you wish, you may display a poster. We will have plenty of time for discussions. Let us all make this the most creative workshop! Format: Broad scope 45 minute presentations followed by 15 minute dis­cussions. Participants: 24 invited speakers, 24 graduate students, plus 150 theo­retical and experimental particle physicists (by invitation only). Organizer: Carlos Montufar (carlosm@usfq.edu.ec), Universidad San Fran­cisco de Quito, Ecuador. Web site: http://www.usfq.edu.ec/ → Galapagos World Summit on Physics Beyond the Standard Model. Proceedings: To leave a lasting legacy of this meeting Universidad San Francisco de Quito will publish a multi-author book which will also be posted to arXiv. Editor: Bruce Hoeneisen. We will also post all presentations (in pdf format) on http://www.usfq.edu.ec. 2 Poster session: There will be a poster session: please feel free to contribute. Galapagos: The Galapagos Islands were declared Natural World Heritage by UNESCO in 1978. The GAIAS Institute is on the beach within walking distance from where Charles Darwin first landed. The animals and plants of the islands inspired his theory of evolution. These are remote islands. The summit will fill all hotels on San Cristobal island so we must book reservations well in advance. Due to the perfect climate of Galapagos the hotels have no heating, air conditioning or hot water. 1 USFQ participates in the DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. 2 Please send your chapter of the book in final form (it will not be edited), in latex format with figures in eps format to bruce1@fnal.gov as a tar attachment, by June 19, 2006. The format will be documentclass[11pt,letterpaper,twoside]book. By submitting a chapter, authors are granting permission to Universidad San Francisco de Quito to include it in the book and publish it. B.H.
