The XXVI International Symposium on Lepton Photon Interactions at High Energies will be held in San Francisco, California, USA during June 24-29, 2013.  Please mark your calendars!  The Symposium webpage is online and will be updated frequently.  Unlike previous Lepton Photon symposia, there will be no country-wise quota of delegates for this meeting.


This Symposium follows the tradition of a long series of international high energy physics conferences.  The program will feature plenary reports covering topics of major interest to the particle physics and astrophysics community.  A poster session will be organized where students and young postdoctoral scholars can present their work.


Registration:  Registration for the Symposium is now open.  Early-bird registration lasts until May 19, 2013.  If you plan to attend the Symposium, then please register at the website, where registration details are available.


Visas:  Please contact the Symposium organizers if you need a letter of invitation in order to obtain a visa.  More details may be found under the “visa information” section of the Symposium webpage.


Scientific program:  The outline scientific program is available on the website.  All Lepton Photon 2013 talks are plenary.


Poster session:  A poster session will be arranged as part of the scientific program.  We encourage faculty, students and post-doctoral researchers to submit abstracts for poster presentations.  The last date for submission of abstracts is June 1, 2013.  All abstracts will be screened by the local organizing committee and submitters will be informed if their poster is selected for display.


Venue:  The venue is the University of California at San Francisco Mission Bay conference center.  UCSF Mission Bay is one of the top medical research campuses in the USA.


Transportation: Transportation will be provided from the conference hotels to the UCSF Mission Bay campus morning and evening.  The San Francisco MUNI system also has a stop at the UCSF Mission Bay campus.


Lodging:  We have blocked rooms at several hotels at a special conference rate.  June is high tourist season in San Francisco, so we encourage you to book lodging early.  If you choose a hotel outside of the LP13 block, we suggest you exercise caution and ensure the hotel is in a decent area of town.  The local organizers are happy to assist you.


Social Program:  San Francisco is one of the world’s most beautiful cities and the location itself will make for a memorable experience.  The Symposium banquet will be held at the newly constructed California Academy of the Sciences.  Special exhibits will be on display for the participants.


I hope to see you in June at the Lepton Photon Symposium in San Francisco!
