November 25 - 27, 2005







We cordially invite you to participate in the second "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory", which will take place at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the University of Vienna, Boltzmanngasse 5, A-1090 Vienna, from Friday Nov. 25 to Sunday Nov. 27, 2005.

This year, "Frontiers in Astroparticle Physics" has been chosen as subject. Spectacular observational progress leads us to surprising conclusions about the nature of the Universe. Cosmic concordance, a consistent picture of the Universe where the very small meets the very large, seems to emerge. In the seminar we will cover recent developments, both experimental and theoretical.

The new seminar series "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory" was created 2004 (see here for details) and is intended to provide stimulating interactions between leading researchers and promising junior physicists. We are presently in the course of inviting speakers and will announce their names in the near future. A considerable number of junior scientists are expected to participate in this meeting, as we received special grants for them. Details on application procedures and the distribution of financial resources shall follow.

The seminar is supported by

The Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, Science and Culture
The High Energy Physics Institute of the Austrian Academy of Sciences
The Erwin Schrödinger International Institute of Mathematical Physics.

We are trying to create a platform for junior scientists: Speakers are to be selected from among them, discussion rounds and poster sessions shall be held. It is our special intention that the innovative character of the meeting will push forward scientific contacts and collaborations.

Moreover, the "Vienna Central European Seminars on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory" should become a unique forum for coordinating conferences, schools and graduate courses in the Central European region. Please see the webpage for information on forthcoming activities in the Central European region and also submit details about your own events.

We remain with sincere regards, yours

Helmuth Hüffel
