We are pleased to announce the Fifth Biennial “Workshop on Discovery Physics at the LHC” (Kruger2018).
The Workshop will be held from 3-7 December 2018 at the 4-star Casa do Sol hotel, just a 15 minute drive from the entrance to the Kruger National Park.
A perfect setting in the heart of scenic Mpumalanga, the luxurious aha Casa do Sol Hotel Hazyview is located next to the Elephant Sanctuary and offers pristine pools, deeply shaded glades and lush flower gardens. The prevailing sense of elegance, peace and quiet belies the fact that the wild and untamed world of the famous Kruger National Park is a mere 15 minutes’ drive away. The village architecture and sub-tropical gardens create a sanctuary of tranquility and spectacular sunsets.
The conference aims to promote scientific exchange of new results and development of novel ideas and models related to the physics of the LHC. The following topics will be covered:
• Particle Physics
• Heavy Ion Physics
• Beyond the Standard Model Physics
Accommodation, registration, abstract submission and other practical details will be announced at a later stage. Attendance will be limited to about 100 participants because of the number of available rooms. Limited funding for South African students is available. We look forward to seeing you all in South Africa.
