Electroweak Measurements at the Energy Frontier

Duke Workshop

February 18-20, 2013

The possibilities for future directions of precision electroweak measurements from the current results and extrapolations at the LHC to a wide range of potential upgrades and new collider facilities are presented and compared. The strategies for producing simulation results and the benchmarks for physics and detector performances are discussed.This workshop is a major kick-off meeting for the development of the Snowmass report on future Electroweak Physics for summer 2013.

The Electroweak Snowmass workshop will take place at Duke University, which is located in Durham, North Carolina, part of the “Triangle” formed by the cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

The workshop will take place in the 1st-floor conference room of the Duke Free Electron Laser Laboratory (DFELL), a  building adjacent to the Department of Physics. A smaller, High Energy Physics conference room is also available on the 2nd floor of the Physics Department, room 278. A searchable campus map is available here. Visitor parking is available at the Bryan Center Parking Garage (Parking Garage IV).

Wi-fi is available across campus. Please connect to the “visitor” network; instructions are available at this link.

For lunch there are a number of choices, all within walking distance from the Physics building and DFELL: LSRC cafeteria, Twinnies, Bryan Center, and a number of restaurants on Erwin Street. For dinner there is a large choice of restaurants within short driving distance.

There are lots of nearby sight-seeing and activities. This is a short list of things to see:

  • Campus tour: Duke Chapel, Sanford School, Perkins and Bostock libraries, Cameron Basketball Stadium
  • Nasher Museum
  • American Tobacco Campus and downtown Durham
  • Franklin Street in Chapel Hill
