    High Energy Particle Physics Workshop

    Dear Colleagues

    We are happy to announce that the Workshop on High Energy Particle Physics will take place at iThemba LABS - Gauteng, February 11th - 13th, 2015.

    The goal of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for students and young researchers to give presentations and to write proceedings. A morning plenary session, followed by 15+10 minute presentations, shall be the format across our three days. Topics to be covered will be high-energy theory and phenomenology (heavy ions, pp, ep, ee, collisions), ALICE and ATLAS physics. We envision providing Honours and undergraduate students with the chance to give poster presentations.

    The deadline for the submission of abstracts is January 15th, 2015. The deadline for submission of proceedings is February 28th, 2015.

    The event will be catered. Funding is available for students outside the Gauteng Province for travel and accommodation arrangements. The deadline to apply for financial support is January 15th 2015.

    Best regards
