The 10th International Symposium on Radiative Corrections "Application of Quantum Field Theory to Phenomenology (RADCOR2011) will be held from the 26th (Monday) to the 30th (Friday) of September 2011, in Radisson Resort Temple Bay, Mamallapuram, India. RADCOR2011 will be the second part of the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) program on RADIATIVE CORRECTIONS FOR THE LHC. This program is co-hosted by Harish-Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata and Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai.
This is the tenth symposium of this series. The main theme of these symposia is the application of quantum field theory to particle physics phenomenology in the high-energy regime. Recent developments in theoretical studies of the radiative corrections of the Standard Model and of its extensions are discussed and compared with available experimental data. Predictions for future experiments are presented.
Topics covered at RADCOR2011 include:
- Phenomenology at high-energy colliders
- QCD physics of hard scattering
- Electroweak radiative corrections, and applications to Standard Model and beyond the Standard Model processes
- New theoretical methods and tools
- Event generators and simulation of signal and background processes
- g-2 of muon, heavy quarks (including B physics), and physics at B-factories and in e+e- collisions at lower energies
and other related subjects.
The tentative schedule of the Symposium is as follows:
September 25th: Arrival and Registration
September 26th: Scientific Program (morning and afternoon)
September 27th: Scientific Program (morning and afternoon)
September 28th: Scientific Program (morning)
September 29th: Scientific Program (morning and afternoon)
Conference Dinner (evening)
September 30th: Scientific Program (morning and early afternoon)
The detailed program will be published in August 2011.
Attendance will be limited to 110 participants. The participants are expected to obtain their own financial support for travel, staying at the resort and registration fee. Lunch, dinner and light refreshments during the coffee breaks for all the participants for the entire period will be taken care of by the organizers. Limited financial support for the stay in the resort is available for young scientists and people with limited resources. If support is required, please contact the local organizers.
The registration pages for the symposium and booking of the rooms in the resort will be activated in May 2011 and the DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS June 30th, 2011.
The conference fee is Rs 10,000 (approximately Euro 150, US $ 220). The fee covers facilities at the symposium venue, proceedings, excursion, cultural program and conference banquet. Participants are requested to pay this fee in Rs on arrival and they will receive an invoice for this payment.
Talks are limited to 25'+5'. Please indicate in the "Registration Form" (in the field: "Other information") whether you would be
interested in giving a talk, if so, provide a tentative title of your talk.
SITE OF SYMPOSIUM AND ACCOMMODATION
The symposium will take place at Radisson Resort Temple Bay, Mamallapuram near Chennai (Madras), India, where all the participants are expected to stay during the symposium. More on the resort can be found at
A sufficient number of rooms has been reserved by the organizers. As part of the registration procedure for the symposium, the participants are requested to book the rooms by credit card via a specially designated webpage of the resort, details of which will be announced later. The resort offers different types of accommodation with single and shared double rooms with a range of room rates between Rs 6800 - 11000 per person per night (single occupancy) and Rs 3900 - 5500 per person per night (double occupancy). Breakfast is included in the room rate. Lunch and dinner will be taken care of by the organizers.
All the meals will be served at the resort.
During end of September and beginning of October, Mamallapuram or Chennai will be mainly dry with few occasional showers with minimum temperature of around 25 degrees Celsius and maximum of 35 degree Celsius. Because the resort is located on the coast, there will be always some breeze and the relative humidity will be around 75%.
The symposium site Radisson Resort Temple Bay is 60 km by road from Chennai. We advice participants to try to book direct flights to Chennai International Airport. Since most of the international flights reach India shortly before or after mid-night, the participants should plan to arrive in the night from Saturday, September 24 to Sunday, September 25, 2011. Transportation from Chennai International Airport to the hotel Radisson Resort Temple Bay will be arranged by the local organizers. If you are travelling via New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata or Hyderabad, you might have to wait in the airports until morning to get connecting flights to Chennai. You are also advised to have a time gap of more than 3 hours
between connecting flights. More details will be given later.
The symposium site, Mamallapuram (also know as Mahabalipuram) was a 7th century port city of the South Indian dynasty of the Pallavas around 60 km south from the city of Chennai in Tamil Nadu. It has various historic monuments built largely between the 7th and the 9th centuries, and has been classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The important structures include Thirukadalmallai, temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu, Descent of the Ganges, Arjuna's Penance,Varaha Cave Temple, The Shore Temple, Pancha Rathas (Five Chariots).
