International Workshop on Heavy Quark Physics - 2019

from to (UTC)
at National Centre for Physics
National Centre for Physics, QAU Campus, Shahdra Valley Road, Islamabad, Pakistan Tel: +92-51-2077363 Fax: +92-51-2077395 E-mail: Website: www.ncp.edu.pk
Description The field of heavy quark physics is of immense contemporary interest due to its discovery potential at the LHC (CERN), Super-B factory (KEK) and BES III (IHEP). This workshop is mainly concerned to the study of the heavy quarks charm, bottom and top with extension of interesting topics involving exotic hadrons. The field of heavy quark physics is of immense contemporary interest due to its discovery potential at the LHC (CERN), Super-B factory (KEK) and BES III (IHEP).

Topics to be covered:

Flavor Physics and CP violation
B-meson decays in Precision Era
Beyond the Standard Model
Multiquark Hadron Physics

The research interest in heavy quark physics has grown progressively over the last few years in Pakistan and presently we have a sizable research community working at NCP and different universities of Pakistan. The purpose of this workshop is to encourage young Pakistani researchers and to facilitate them to build international collaborations. In this context, we plan to have 3/4 lectures on each of these topics.
