The particle theory group (in T-2) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory will host its annual workshop in July 2012 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 8 TeV run of the LHC .

We plan to have a number of talks daily (July 9 through July 13), with plenty of time for informal discussion and collaboration. To encourage this informality, attendance will be limited to 30 participants.


Accommodations for six nights (July 8 through July 13) at the La Fonda Hotel is included with the registration fee. While additional nights will not be covered by the registration fee, there are a very limited number of rooms available for the night of July 7th and July 14th. 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 $300 for all faculty and $200 for junior participants. The registration fee is waived for graduate students. Due to support from the University of New Mexico and the New Mexico Center for Particle Physics, we have a limited amount of funding to help junior participants and graduate students defer their transportation costs. Please contact us if you really think you need it.
