7th International Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle
University of Cincinnati
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
September 28 - October 2, 2012
The International Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle is well-established as one of the leading meetings in the field of quark flavour physics. It provides a venue for theorists and experimentalists to discuss the latest new developments and to come up with ideas for improved analyses.
The Seventh in the series will take place at the University of Cincinnati located in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, from September 28 - October 2, 2012. We will hear reports on the latest measurements from current experiments, as well as the status of preparations for next generation experiments. On the theoretical side, we will hear the latest progress in lattice QCD calculations, as well as in the development of techniques that enable ever more precise determinations of the elements of the CKM matrix. We will discuss how the combination of experiment and theory can allow searches for physics beyond the Standard Model and consider the interplay of the quark-flavour field with high-pT searches for new physics.
The organization of the meeting will be similar to previous workshops. The workshop will be a culmination of the effort of seven working groups. For this workshop we have added a working group on Top quark physics and a working group on Charm mixing and CPV measurements. There will be joint sessions to discuss topics of interest to multiple working groups. There will also be opening and summary plenary sessions.
