Theory Workshop 2015

The annual DESY Theory Workshop is organized by the elementary particle physics community in Germany. The focus is on a topical subject in theoretical particle physics and related fields. The workshop features:


  • Four half-day plenary sessions of specialized talks by invited speakers.
  • Two half-days of parallel sessions, allowing young researchers to present their work.
  • The DESY Heinrich-Hertz-Lecture on Physics for public outreach.
