The Workshop continues a series of workshops started by the Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP MSU) in 1985 and conceived with the purpose of presenting topics of current interest and providing a stimulating environment for scientific discussion on new developments in theoretical and experimental high energy physics and physical programs for future colliders. Traditionally the list of workshop attendees includes a great number of active young scientists from Russia and other countries.
The Workshop QFTHEP'2004 will take place on 17-23 June 2004 in Peterhof (near St. Petersburg), where the world famous palace and park ensemble with amasing fountains, founded by Peter the Great in 1705, is situated.

Scientific program

The Workshop will include plenary morning and three parallel afternoon sessions. The plenary sessions will consist of invited lectures (up to 45 min.). The afternoon sessions will include original talks (up to 20 min.).
The main topics to be covered are:
I. The present status of Standard Model, last (final) results from HERA and LEP2, and recent results from the Tevatron RUN2, Babar and Belle.
II. Physics at LHC, Tevatron and Linear Colliders:
  • phenomenology of the top quark and gauge bosons;
  • phenomenology of Higgs bosons in various SUSY and non-SUSY scenarios;
  • prospects to search for extra dimensions, non-commutative geometry and other exotics.
III. Physical models at TeV and higher energy scales:
  • SUSY extensions of the Standard Model;
  • mechanisms of spontaneous breaking of gauge symmetry, "Little Higgs" models;
  • composite models of quarks, leptons, gauge and Higgs bosons;
  • theories of particle interactions with extra dimensions;
  • strings, quantum groups and various ideas from modern geometry and algebra.
IV. Monte Carlo event generators and physics simulations for future colliders.
V. Intersections of particle and nuclear physics:
  • hypernuclear physics, hadron-nucleus interaction and related topics;
  • modern trends in nuclear physics.
VI. Exotic hadron spectroscopy
The working languages at the Workshop will be English and Russian.

Contributions and Proceedings

Talks will be selected by the Organizing Committee on the basis of abstracts to be submitted before May 1, 2004.
The Workshop Proceedings will be published, a special circular with the instructions for authors will be sent out later on.

Participation and fees

The registration fees are 250 Euro for participants and 150 Euro for accompanying persons payable in cash upon arrival only. It includes Proceedings, welcome party, banquet, coffee-breaks and local transportation. A full-board accommodation in the hotel-sanatorium "Petrodvorets" will cost about 40 Euro per night, also to be paid in cash.
The Organizing Committee will provide a partial financial support for a limited number of participants from Russia and the former Soviet Union republics according to personal requests (application form). The deadline for applications is May 1, 2004.

Social program

The Organizing Committee is planning to arrange a sightseeing of St. Petersburg, visits to the museums, theaters, etc. and to the famous sites in the countryside for extra charge. A special social program for the accompanying persons can also be organized.

Travel information

The arrival day is June 16, the departure day is June 23 (afternoon). The detailed information on how to get to the Petershof will be sent out later to the registered partisipants.
