MITP workshop "Scattering Amplitudes and Resonance Properties from Lattice QCD"
In recent years, Lattice QCD (LQCD) calculations of stable-hadron properties have become considerably more precise, and as a result, LQCD inputs are having an increasing impact on Standard-Model phenomenology. Considering this progress, it is natural to also examine the prospects for using lattice QCD to calculate the properties of unstable hadrons, i.e. QCD resonances that decay via the strong force. The extraction of resonance properties is much more challenging, but also in this sector enormous progress has been made in the development of both theoretical methods and numerical techniques. The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in developing the formalism and lattice practitioners, in order to review the status of ongoing calculations and discuss future prospects. The workshop will emphasize the future role of LQCD in precision resonance physics, especially in the context of forthcoming experiments. ...

Second Workshop of the Muon g-2 Theory Initiative
In the coming years, experiments at Fermilab and at J-PARC plan to reduce the uncertainties on the already very precisely measured anomalous magnetic moment of the muon by a factor of four. The goal is to resolve the current tantalizing tension between theory and experiment of three to four standard deviations. On the theory side the hadronic corrections to the anomalous magnetic moment are the dominant sources of uncertainty. They must be determined with better precision in order to unambiguously discover whether or not new physics effects contribute to this quantity.
There are a number of complementary theoretical efforts underway to better understand and quantify the hadronic corrections, including dispersive methods, lattice QCD, effective field theories, and QCD models. The Muon (g-2) Theory Initiative was formed in order to facilitate interactions between the different groups through organizing a series of workshops. The goal of this workshop is to bring together theorists from the different communities to discuss, assess, and compare the status of the various efforts, and to map out strategies for obtaining the best theoretical predictions for these hadronic corrections in advance of the experimental results. ...
Special Colloquium with Nobel laureate Professor Wolfgang Ketterle
We are happy to welcome Professor Wolfgang Ketterle at the Physics Colloquium in the lecture hall of the IMB. He will give a lecture on
New forms of matter with ultracold atoms: superfluids and supersolids
Why do physicists freeze matter to extremely low temperatures? Why is it worthwhile to cool to temperatures which are a billion times lower than that of interstellar space? In this talk, I will discuss new forms of matter, which only exist at extremely low temperatures. With the help of laser beams, gases of ultracold atoms can be transformed into crystals and insulators, and recently into a supersolid which is gaseous, liquid and solid at the same time. ...

12th European Research Conference on Electromagnetic Interactions with Nucleons and Nuclei
This conference series covers experimental and theoretical topics in the areas of nuclear and hadronic physics.

No proceedings will be produced, in the tradition of Gordon and Euroconferences, in order to encourage the frank exchange of even tentative information.
The pre-conference from 29-30 October is organized by young physicists and focuses on skill and career development as well as research. Further, a series of pedagogical lectures will take place on the day before the conference ...

Anlässlich des 60. Geburtstages von Professor Klaus Wendt spricht Professor Klaus Blaum zum Thema:
Measuring the World - Precision Measurements of Fundamental Properties of Atoms and Nuclei
Atomic physics techniques like Penning-trap mass spectrometry and laser spectroscopy have provided sensitive and high-precision tools for a detailed study of atomic and nuclear ground-state properties far from the valley of stability. Mass, moment and nuclear charge radii measurements in long isotopic and isotonic chains have allowed, e.g., to extract nuclear structure information such as shell and subshell closures, the onset of deformation, the coexistence of nuclear shapes and the discovery of new magic numbers. This colloquium covers the mentioned experimental techniques to study nuclear ground state properties and their impact on nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics and tests of fundamental interactions and their symmetries. Comparisons to state-of-the-art calculations will be presented as well. ...

Scientific Programme on Fundamental Parameters from Lattice QCD
Lattice QCD inputs are becoming ever more important for phenomenology, and have greatly contributed to determining Standard Model parameters such as the quark masses and the running coupling constant, with an overall accuracy that far exceeds the intrinsic uncertainties of other methods. This has prompted several efforts to provide PDG-style global estimates of lattice results for use in phenomenology, including a careful assessment of systematic errors and the overall accuracy. The aim of this MITP scientific program is to bring together the lattice practitioners who are involved in producing global estimates with the members of the phenomenological and experimental communities who will be using lattice estimates as input for phenomenological analyses in order to test the validity of the Standard Model. ...
