Virginia Tech to Host Heavy Quarks and Leptons

      The Center for Neutrino Physics, the Department of Physics and the College of Science will host the XIIIth International Conference on Heavy Quarks and Leptons from May 22nd through 27th, 2016.

Heavy Quarks and Leptons (or HQL for short) is dedicated to the study of the heavy quarks charm, bottom, and top with obvious extensions to interesting topics involving the strange quark. Neutrino oscillation studies and new insights in μ and τ lepton phenomenology are also included. The conference continues the tradition of regular scientific meetings, first started in 1993 at the Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati under the name "Heavy Quarks at Fixed Target", and widened in 2002 to include leptons with the workshop renamed to what it is known as today.

The conference will bring together scientists from four continents. More than 75 pleanary talks are schedule over the week long conference.
