Since we appear to be in the business of summer school announcements, it is perhaps worth passing along the date and title for next year’s SLAC Summer Institute:
Revolutions on the Horizon
3 – 14 August 2009
The SLAC Summer Institutes are only half the length of TASI and tend to be at a more introductory level, but they are great ways to dive into a research area. One can get a sample by viewing some of their recorded lectures. (To the best of my knowledge they were the first summer school ot regularly do this.)
The school website does not yet exist, but the following blurb is posted:
The topic is a study of all the upcoming experiments turning on soon and the big discoveries they will make. Website coming soon.
`Upcoming experiments’ certainly includes the LHC. But what else could be included to differentiate the school from their 2006 LHC program? Given SLAC’s shift towards cosmology, GLAST is also a likely `upcoming experiment.’ And then perhaps some flavour physics to round out the discussion?
