Focus week on LHC physics

Announcement of IPMU focus week on LHC physics.

Focus week: We are organizing a small discussion oriented meeting on New Physics at LHC. This is the second LHC focus week at the IPMU. The last one took place on Dec. 2007, with about 10 invited speakers and 50 participants. The format of the focus week is not usual one. We only have two or three talks a day with plenty of discussion time so that one can develop new projects. One day of the week will be a workshop day so that participants can make a presentation. You can see the slides of the previous meeting at We plan to make this meeting in June with similar atmosphere. At this time, the following speakers are invited.
