Welcome to the 40th SLAC Summer Institute

The Electroweak Scale: Unraveling the Mysteries at the LHC

July 23 - August 3, 2012
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Menlo Park, California

Exploration of the TeV scale holds the promise of addressing some of our most basic questions about Nature. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has begun to probe this new energy frontier and data is rapidly accumulating. Perhaps the most serious question for the LHC to address is the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking.

The 2012 SLAC Summer Institute will focus on the recent LHC results and their implications for the Electroweak scale and beyond. Mornings will consist of lectures and in the afternoons, topical conference talks will alternate with discussion sessions, tours, and social events.
