Description
March 9 : Airline cancellations to Aspen due to wheather might impact the agenda/timetable. Please look here for updates.  


These are exciting times. By winter of 2013, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the LHC will establish their discovery of a new Higgs-like particle with a mass around 125 GeV. The new data will shed light on its properties. Many fundamental questions in Physics will start to get their answer. The 2013 Aspen Winter Conference on particle physics will bring together experimentalists and theorists, creating an ideal environment to present and discuss the implications of the Higgs discovery in the framework of the Standrad Model and beyond. The conference will be formulated to encourage close collaborations and active exchange of information, which is crucial for making progress on this central topic of particle physics.
