Description
BEACH2008 is the eigth in a series of Particle Physics meetings which started in 1995 in Strasbourg, France. The following topics exemplify the broad scope of the conference: CP violation in K and B-meson decays, Heavy quark physics, Heavy quarkonium production and decay, Light meson production and neutrino flux, Heavy Quark Effective Theory, Lattice QCD and non-relativistic QCD, Precise electroweak measurements, Hyperon physics, Hadronic-neutrino physics, Top-quark physics, New experimental facilities and projects. The organizers are aiming at a stimulating mix of presentations on both experimental and theoretical work. Presentations on preparation for upcoming experiments will share the podium with recent results. The contributions will include reports from the various experimental projects that relate to the theme of the conference. Continuing the tradition of the BEACH series all of the sessions will be plenary sessions. The program will accommodate review talks of twenty to thirty minutes and short contributions requiring ten to twenty minutes. Presentations will generally fit into one of the following categories: Recent experimental results, Recent theoretical results, Progress reports on approved experiments, Construction of new detectors and related technology. To complement the diversity of topics the organizers encourage diversity among the participants in regard both to geography and to professional status. The conference is intended to be a productive experience for graduate students and senior researchers alike. The organizers will foster an informal ambience conducive both to collaboration and to networking. The conference will consist of plenary sessions, with experimental and theory presentations.
