Physicists Gather at Virginia Tech to Discuss Quarks and Leptons

Physics gathered at Virginia to discuss the latest findings in the area of heavy quarks and leptons. In the week of May 23rd, Virginia Tech's Center for Neutrino Physics, welcomed physicists from around the world to the XIIIth International Conference on Heavy Quarks and Leptons. The event was co-sponsored by the Center for Neutrino Physics, the College of Science, the Department of Physics and the Office of the VP for Research.

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. This years version of the biennial conference featured more than 75 pleanary talks, including recent results on heavy quarks from the LHC experiments and the dedicated heavy quark experiements Belle and BES. Results and updates from several neutrino experimets were also discussed.
