ICTP Director and scientists lecture at Balkan Workshop
16/05/2013 – Trieste: ICTP sponsored a recent workshop in Vrnjačka Banja, Serbia that was organized by the Southeastern European Network in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics (SEENET-MTP) Titled Beyond the Standard Models, the workshop aimed at bridging the gap between Southeastern and Western European scientific communities, featuring lectures by prominent physicists including ICTP Director Fernando Quevedo and ICTP research scientist Paolo Creminelli of the High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (HECAP) research section.
The topics covered at the workshop included Theory and (LHC) Phenomenology, Cosmology (Classical and Quantum, Inflation, Dark Matter and Dark Energy), Quantum Gravity and Extra Dimensions, Strings, Noncommutative Models for Planck Scale Physics. More information is available on the BW2013 – Beyond the Standard Models Website. Creminelli, along with ICTP postdoctoral fellow Emilano Sefusatti, lectured on cosmology after Planck. ICTP’s High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics research section is a SEENET-MIP partner, and as such has a history of supporting SEENET-MTP activities. Creminelli says that supporting science initiatives in Balkan states fits in perfectly with the ICTP mission.

The Balkan Workshop BW2013 — Beyond the Standard Models, held in Vrnjačka Banja, Serbia (April 25 – 29, 2013) was jointly organized by the SEENET-MTP Network and its Office at the Faculty of Science and Mathematics Niš, in close cooperation with CERN Theory Division and LMU/MPI Munich.
The organizers of BW2013 remain grateful for the scientific contribution and support thanks to which Balkan Workshop BW2013 – Beyond the Standard Models has been such a resounding success.
Many thanks to our main supporters, in particular to: Central European Initiative – CEI (Trieste, Italy), UNESCO Office (Venice, Italy), The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics – ICTP (Trieste, Italy) and European Physical Society – EPS (Mulhouse, France) for support and patronage.
A number of publications related to BW2013 will be published during this year. More information and a call for papers will be delivered to invited authors and displayed on this web page.

Physics students (undergraduates) in the Netherlands are organizing a new international physics problem solving tournament with the name Physics League Across Numerous Countries for Kick-ass Students (PLANCK).
PLANCKS is a three day event (date to be announced). Every country can send in their top three teams of physics students to battle against each other over extremely difficult exercises. Teams can be up to four contestants and will also enjoy lectures by famous physicists.

The latest issue (March 2013) of the newsletter of the European Physical Society (e-EPS) brings the article about Balkan Workshop 2013 and the celebration of 10th year of the SEENET-MTP Network:
The new edition of the Balkan Workshop – “Beyond Standard Models” [BW2013] will be held this spring, from 25 to 29 April 2013, in Vrnjačka Banja, Serbia.
The series of Balkan workshops has been a very important part of a project of the Southeastern European Network in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics [SEENET-MTP]. Created in 2003, SEENET-MTP was the initiative of the University of Niš, Serbia, and the Scientists in Global Responsibility project (“Wissenschaftler in Global Verantwortung” in German) of Prof. Julius Wess from the Ludwig-Maximilians University [LMU] of Munich, Germany.
On Wednesday, March 27, you can follow live webcast of special event organised by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) called the Youth Forum.
The first session of this event will be on “Young Women in Science” where three young women scientists from CERN will take part in a panel discussion. This special collaboration with ECOSOC comes from CERN’s new observer status at the United Nations.
The event will start at 15:00 CERN time with Mr Ban Ki -moon’s opening address. The “Young Women in Science” session itself will start 15:25 and will last 70 minutes. There will be a 20-minute panel discussion where young women scientists will speak briefly, including three women from CERN to present recommendations coming from a larger study group.
The actual event will be in New York and attended by many high school and university students. CERN will participate via video connection with a simultaneous webcast at http://webtv.un.org/ Read more…
The Abdus Salam ICTP and SISSA, in collaboration with the partner institutions of the Master in the Physics of Complex Systems (http://www.polito.it/pcs) organize the Spring College on the Physics of Complex Systems from 20 May to 14 June 2013.
This Spring College is part of the Master program in Physics of Complex Systems, and aims at giving Master and PhD students the opportunity to get in touch with a selection of topics at the forefront of research, during an intensive 4-weeks program. Read more…
