Workshop on Lattice QCD
Joint Workshop of the
Special Research Center for the Subatomic Structure of Matter
National Institute for Theoretical Physics
December 7 through 18, 1998
Robert Bursill (U. NSW)
The Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) and the National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITP) at the University of Adelaide is holding a workshop on Lattice QCD. The workshop has been scheduled from Monday the 7th of December through to Friday the 18th. This timing was chosen to fall between the two large lattice meetings in each of mid-98 and mid-99 and is hopefully a time in which those with teaching duties in the northern hemisphere might be able to get away. We are planning a smaller style workshop with one to two talks in the morning, leaving the emphasis on collaborative research. The details of how to register for this workshop are given at the close of this document. This page will be updated regularly.
The program is now available.
The National Institute for Theoretical Physics (NITP) and the Special Research Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter (CSSM) are located at ( See map at Q-12 )CSSMPurpose:
4/10 Pulteney St.
Adelaide, SA 5005
This is meant to be a true workshop in the sense that sufficient time will be made available each day for discussions which may develop into collaborative projects. It is intended that there will be no more than two talks each morning and the afternoon will be left free for discussions and collaborations. The working facilities, especially the computing resources, are excellent.
Suggested topics include but are not limited to:
- Improved Actions
- QCD Spectrum
- Quark Masses
- Topology and Confinement
- Electroweak Interactions
- Heavy Quark Physics
- QCD at Finite Temperature and Density
- Chiral Gauge Theories
- Chiral Perturbation Theory
The registration fee is A$200 (A$50 for students). This includes coffee breaks amongst other things. At this stage no proceedings are planned for the workshop.
Applications for support may be sent to the workshop organizers.
The CSSM has access to special accommodations for visitors to the University of Adelaide which are not available to the general public. To book these accommodations of exceptional value, contact the CSSM by e-mailing Sharon or Cheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org.The residential wing of the Royal Adelaide Hospital acts partly as a nurses' home. It is a five minute walk from the CSSM. Situated on Frome Road, adjacent to the University and to the rear of the Royal Adelaide Hospital site, these rooms provide views over the Botanic Gardens. Rooms with an ensuite bathroom (shower and toilet ), linen, divan and television are A$45 for a single person per night or A$55 for two persons per night. Single rooms with shared facilities are available for only A$18 per night (full-time students - A$15).If you are traveling with family, suites near the beach at Glenelg can provide a very enjoyable stay at an economical price. A 30 minute tram ride into the city and a 15 minute walk into the CSSM provides a 45 minute commute from the beach to the Centre. For 7-18 December inclusive, a one bedroom apartment at La Mancha (on the beachfront) is $75 per night, while a two bedroom apartment at Marco Polo (a half block short walking distance to beach) is $75 per night. For more information, just ask Sharon or Cheryl to look into booking accommodations at the beach in Glenelg.
Kathleen Lumley College is a Postgraduate College associated with the University of Adelaide. Situated across the park lands at 51 Finniss St. in North Adelaide, it is 1.4 km from the CSSM. Rooms including an ensuite bathroom (shower and toilet ), linen, and tea making facilities, as well as dinner and breakfast served Monday through Saturday are available for single occupancy at A$40 to A$45 per night. Self-contained flats for one or two persons with a private kitchen as well as dinner and breakfast Monday through Saturday are available at A$45.80 per flat. A single room with shared facilities is available for only A$22/night which still includes breakfast & dinner. Laundry facilities are also available on site.
