Dear Colleagues

I bring to your attention the forthcoming

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF SUBNUCLEAR PHYSICS

50th Course: WHAT WE WOULD LIKE LHC TO GIVE US

Erice, 23 June - 2 July 2012

As in the long tradition of the school , also this year the program

will be rich of lectures covering the wide range of

topics related to the LHC physics. As usual, the school is

particularly addressed to students, with stimulating discussions with the

invited experts and a session dedicated to the presentation of their work.

More details and the application forms are available in

Best greetings

Rosario

INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF SUBNUCLEAR PHYSICS

50th Course: WHAT WE WOULD LIKE LHC TO GIVE US

Erice, 23 June - 2 July 2012

50th Anniversary Celebrations 2011-2012-2013

This Course will be the second of the three devoted to the celebrations

of the 50th Anniversary of the Subnuclear Physics School which was started

in 1961 by Antonino Zichichi with John Bell at CERN and formally established

in 1962 by Bell, Blackett, Weisskopf, Rabi and Zichichi in Geneva (CERN);

the first course being at Erice in 1963. This is why the celebrations

will last three years.

The EMFCSC has decided to give special funds for the three years celebrations

of the 50th Anniversary. These funds will be devoted each year to the

selection of 50 excellent fellows by the board of Invited Scientists and

Lecturers.

The lectures will be, as usual, fully devoted to the latest and most

significant achievements in theoretical and in experimental physics.

In fact during the last half century the School has been involved in

all crucial steps of our Physics. Few examples: SU(3) flavour and SU(6)

[with SU(2)-spin coupled with SU(3) flavour] dismantled by the

¡ÈNo-Go-Theorem¡É, the battle between S-Matrix and Field Theory,

the Universality of the weak forces [started with the ¦Å-parameter

and the non existence of the ¡Èflavour changing-neutral currents¡É

solved by the existence of ¡Ècharm¡É], the experimental search for

the 3rd lepton in the early sixties before the discovery of CP breaking,

the birth of the Electroweak Unification and the SSB mechanism,

the discovery of the negative sign of the ¦Â-function and of asymptotic

freedom, the triumph of non Abelian field theories (QCD and QFD) with all

consequences (including Instantons), the discovery of Supersymmetry

(many years - and not few days - after the ¡ÈNo-Go-Theorem¡É).

Now the focus is on RQST (Relativistic Quantum String Theory) and LHC,

including totally unexpected events.
