STRONGBSM Kickoff Meeting

August 16-19, 2010.

The goal of the STRONGBSM network is to boost career perspectives of early-stage researches (ESR) and young experienced researchers (ER) within the extremely competitive and highly demanding field of particle physics now working at the highest energy frontier ever reached by humans. We will prepare a new generation of world leaders for both the academic and the private sectors. The cocktail of strong academic and powerful industrial partners will further make research careers more attractive to young minds. This will be achieved via a trans-national research training throughout Member States and Associated countries as well as our trans-ocean collaborations.

STRONGBSM partners are world leaders in models of dynamical electroweak symmetry breaking and their impact in particle physics and cosmology, in analytic and lattice studies of the phase diagram of strongly coupled theories as function of number of flavours, colours, matter representation, temperature and matter density, and in new approaches on how to simulate supersymmetric theories on supercomputers.

The meeting will start the operations of the consortium with the definition of the work-packages for the project and the planning of future activities.

Travel Information

There are direct trains from the Copenhagen Airport to Odense Train Station. You can also stop first at the train station in Copenhagen and then take the first train to Odense. With the fast train the ride is about 80 minutes. From the railway station you can either take a taxi (about 100 DKK or 15 €) or take bus number 40, 41 or 42 labeled Universitetet that drives directly to the university.


Accommodation is the participants’ own responsibility. More information to follow.
