November 30 - December 02, 2007






We cordially invite you to participate in the fourth "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory", which will take place at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna, Boltzmanngasse 5, A-1090 Vienna, from Friday November 30 to Sunday December 02, 2007.

This year, "COMMUTATIVE AND NONCOMMUTATIVE QUANTUM FIELDS" has been chosen as subject. Recent developments and new phenomena in relativistic quantum field theory are discussed within the framework of local quantum physics in its algebraic formulation as well as by deforming space time. Aspects of renormalization are dealt with.

We are pleased to announce the lecturers invited to this year's seminar:


Dorothea Bahns (Hamburg)
A.P. Balachandran(Syracuse)
Detlev Buchholz (Goettingen)
Masud Chaichian (Helsinki)
Sergio Doplicher (Rome)
Stefan Hollands (Goettingen)
Gandalf Lechner (Vienna)
Vincent Rivasseau (Paris)
Philippe Roche (Montpellier)
Peter Schupp (Bremen)
Richard Szabo (Edinburgh)


The new seminar series "Vienna Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory" was created 2004 and is intended to provide stimulating interactions between leading researchers and promising junior physicists. 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 can be found in the Second Announcement.

The seminar is supported by

The Austrian Federal Ministry for Science and Research
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" intends to be a forum for coordinating conferences, schools and graduate courses in the Central European region. Please see the webpage http://cepgc.phy.hr/ for information on the "Central European Joint Program of Doctoral Studies in Theoretical Physics". Nine Central European universities and institutions have joined in a collaboration to strengthen and develop their Ph.D. programmes.

Specifically, as an introduction to the subject of this year's Vienna Seminar two intensive courses will be held in parallel:

"Quantum Field Theory and Noncommutative Geometry" by Harald Grosse
"Local Quantum Physics" by Jakob Yngvason

Vienna, 24 - 28 September 2007

Attending the courses will be free of charge, financial support for living expenses is available for MSc or PhD students coming from the partner institutions of the "Central European Joint Program of Doctoral Studies in Theoretical Physics".


We remain with sincere regards, yours

Helmuth Hüffel
