The Center for Future High Energy Physics (CFHEP), hosted by Institute of High Energy Physics, will start its activities in Feb. 2014. CFHEP will dedicate its efforts to carrying out detailed studies on both the physics case and the design of the possible future colliders. The immediate focus will be on an electron-positron Higgs factory and a high energy proton-proton collider, based on a circular tunnel. More information regarding CFHEP can be found at http://cfhep.ihep.ac.cn.
This symposium is the kick-off meeting for CFHEP. There will be a day of public events on Feb 23, highlighting new physics opportunities after the discovery of the Higgs. It will feature a panel discussion at Tsinghua University with panelists Nima Arkani-Hamed, David Gross, Gerard 't Hooft, Joseph Incandela, Luciano Maiani, Hitoshi Murayama, Yifang Wang and Edward Witten, moderated by Shing-Tung Yau, on the topic of "After the Higgs Discovery: Where is Fundamental Physics Going?".
A two-day workshop (Feb 24 - 25) will then be held at IHEP, focusing on the physics case for future circular colliders, as well as discussions on how to synchronize the domestic theoretical particle physics effort with the planning and designing of future circular machines.
The registration fee is 500 RMB, exclusive of board and lodging. The registration fee must be paid in Chinese RMB at the registration desk on-site. Please note that the credit card payment cannot be accepted.
We hope you will join us to begin a discussion of these issues and we are looking forward to a fruitful year of CFHEP activities in 2014!
