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

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.
