SLAC Summer Institution Program

The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual two-week-long Summer School tradition since 1973. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of special lectures, topical conference talks, discussion sessions, student projects and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to postdocs, as well as senior researchers.

The theme of the 2016 SSI will be ''New Horizons on the Energy Frontier”, focusing on the Run 2 LHC, its upgrades and possible future e+e- and hadron colliders. The LHC has just begun taking data at 13 TeV with growing anticipations on what it might discover during Run 2. Our community is also contemplating potential future facilities to follow up the upgraded LHC. This ambitious journey to unlock the secret of nature beyond the Standard Model involves extensive challenges to the accelerator, experimental and theoretical communities with variety of opportunities.
