XVIIth UK Institute for
Theoretical High Energy Physicists

26 August to 13 September 1996: University of Durham


Wojtek Zakrzewski writes:
Perhaps you could advertise our Institute, the first two weeks of which may be of interest to many readers of Nonlinear News.

I hope that all "nonlinear" people who would like to come do come for the second week when Nick Manton's lectures will provide a focus for our interaction.


The aim of the Institute is to create a research environment in which participants can collaborate, discuss and initiate research, and learn about recent developments in theoretical particle physics.

Programme:

The following lecture courses have been arranged with the aim of giving a pedagogic presentation of topics at the frontiers of current research suitable for both experts and non-experts alike.
Week 1 (26 August to 30 August) ( Duality,...)
Luis ALVAREZ-GAUME, Kumar NARAIN, Paul TOWNSEND

Week 2 (2 September to 6 September) ( Solitons in Field Theory, Lattices )
Nick MANTON, Akira UKAWA

Week 3 (9 September to 13 September) ( Phenomenology, Approaches to QCD )
Yuri DOKHSHITZER, Toni PICH

The lecture courses will be supplemented by seminars and colloquia covering a broad spectrum of particle theory and mathematical physics.

Accommodation:

The entire Institute will take place within St. John's College of the University of Durham. The College is close by the Cathedral and the centre of the city. Participants are invited to bring their families and there are some limited facilities for children.

Funding and Costs:

The Institute is funded by PPARC.

For UK participants the cost of travel (equivalent to British Rail's Saver Ticket fares) together with full board accommodation will be provided by the Institute. For non-UK participants the charge for full board and accommodation is $32/day. We regret that travel and accommodation for families cannot be funded by the Institute. Children of 11 years and under are half price. We hope to organise a social programme for families and participants.
