Santa Fe 2010 Summer Workshop

``LHC: From Here to Where?''

July 5 - July 9, 2010

The schedule and list of participants are posted

NEW!-- All talks are now posted NEW!--


The particle theory group (in T-2) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory will host its annual workshop in July 2010 at the historic La Fonda Hotel, located next to the plaza in downtown Santa Fe. The theme of this summer's week long workshop will be the next few years of LHC physics. Among the topics to be discussed are signatures of new physics, jet physics, electroweak symmetry breaking and model-building (supersymmetry, extra dimensions, strongly-coupled theories and CFT physics....). Talks from the previous 2008 workshop are available.

We plan to have a number of talks daily (July 5 through July 9), with plenty of time for informal discussion and collaboration. To encourage this informality, attendance will be limited to 40 participants.


Accommodations for six nights (July 4 through July 9) at the La Fonda Hotel is included with the registration fee. Additional nights will not be covered by the registration fee but depending on room availability workshop participants can reserve additional nights before or after the workshop at the special rate of $109 (same rate for double occupancy) plus any applicable taxes. Please do not make your own reservations with the hotel. Further details on accomodations can be found here.

The registration fee, which includes six nights accommodations, breakfast, lunch and snacks Monday-Friday, will be $350 for all faculty and $250 for junior participants.


We ask that participants plan to attend for the entire week of the workshop. To register for the workshop, send an email to Please indicate

If you intend to stay in Santa Fe for additional nights, we strongly encourage you to make your decisions early so that we can guarantee the special rate for your stay. We will be unable to provide travel expenses or salaries for the time spent at the workshop.

This webpage will be updated with arrival and talk information in the coming weeks.
