13th SAC Seminar "New Perspectives of High Energy Physics", Novosibirsk, 01-05 September 2010

The Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) of the International Science & Technology Center (ISTC) jointly with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and with the assistance of the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (Novosibirsk) are organizing the 13th SAC seminar "New Perspectives of High Energy Physics", in Novosibirsk, Russian Federation, on 01 – 05 September 2010. 

The seminar will report on the latest achievements and challenges in High Energy Physics and aims to identify future developments in this field as well as possible technology transfers to other areas such as medicine and informatics. A special session will focus on the role and contribution of young scientists into high energy physics research. Past and future cooperation between CERN and Russian/CIS institutes will be an important subject on the agenda.
