Prof. Kotwal to speak in France

Wednesday, July 7, 2010

Prof. Ashutosh Kotwal will soon be traveling to Blois, France, to give an invited plenary lecture at Rencontres de Blois—an annual multidisciplinary conference. This year’s conference, which runs July 15-20, is titled “Particle Physics and Cosmology: First Results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).” Kotwal will speak on “Precision Tests of the Standard Model” on July 17. “The start of the LHC is a tremendously exciting time,” he says, “and this is a good time to take stock of what we have learned so far from precise measurements of particle properties and how these measurements can guide us in the search for new particles and forces at the LHC.”
