PIC2015, University of Warwick, Coventry, UK, 15th - 19th September, 2015

Conference Background

The international symposium on Physics in Collision (PIC) is a conference series exploring and updating key topics in Elementary Particle Physics, where new results have been published or are due to be published before the next symposium. The PIC symposium series began in 1981 in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA.

The conference program consists of invited talks and contributions in poster session. Invited speakers review and update key topics in elementary particle physics with the aim of encouraging informal discussions on new experimental results and their implications. The aim of the presentations is to encourage informal discussions of new experimental results and their implications.

The topics at the symposium cover a wide range of physics subjects from experimental and theoretical accelerator-based particle physics to astroparticle physics. Specifically, the meeting topics include Electroweak phenomena, neutrino physics, QCD, heavy flavor physics, heavy ion physics, Higgs physics, Searches for BSM physics, and astroparticle physics. Invited oral presentations are made during plenary sessions.

Symposium poster session

There will also be a poster session that is open for contributions from all participants. All abstracts for posters having potential interest to the particle-physics community are welcome. This includes topics such as current experimental measurements, detectors, future experiments and facilities, theoretical ideas, etc., a broader range of topics than that of the plenary invited talks. Accepted posters will be displayed during the conference poster session. Posters will be based on abstracts submitted to the organizers.
