Vision to Future Colliders
IAS Program on High Energy Physics
4 – 29 Jan 2016
Building on the success of the same program in 2015, IAS co-organized again with the Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for a one-month program on High Energy Physics, which attracted more than 100 participants for fruitful academic exchanges.
Apart from attendees of 2015, the program in 2016 welcomed a number of new faces from institutions in the US, Europe, Russia, Japan, Korea, mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Upon completion of 15 talks and discussion sessions in the program as well as 60 talks and a forum session in the conference, participants were invited to contribute white papers to the particle physics community by documenting the physics goals, options of future colliders, and the reach of the related experiments. Similar to the program in 2015, papers submitted in 2016 are expected to be published by World Scientific in dedicated issues of the International Journal of Modern Physics A.
