The Third IUCSS Summer School and Workshop on the Standard-Model Extension (SME) will be held in the Physics Department at Indiana University, Bloomington from Friday June 15 to Saturday June 23, 2018. This event is aimed primarily at students and researchers in theory and experiment who seek a pedagogical introduction to the SME framework.
Starting from the foundations, the School lectures will explore theoretical, phenomenological, and experimental topics in Lorentz and CPT breaking and guide participants to the forefront of current research in the field. The discussion sessions are designed to reinforce and supplement the lecture material. A poster session will provide an opportunity for School participants to showcase their own research. An IUCSS Workshop on current research in Lorentz and CPT violation will be held concurrently during the last part of the School.
The School is envisaged to cover the following topics:
There is no registration fee for the School and Workshop, but online registration on or before April 30, 2018 is required. Due to space limitations the total attendance is likely to be capped, so early registration is advised to avoid disappointment.
Partial support for local housing may be available upon request. Participants desiring support should ask a senior scientist to send an email to the organizer, Ralf Lehnert, describing the need for support. Preference may be given to requests made before March 31, 2018.
The School and Workshop hotel is the Indiana Memorial Union. This is located on campus close to the Physics Department and offers convenient access to the meeting venue. Parking in the hotel lot is free to hotel guests.
