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) held the 13th SAC seminar, New Perspectives of High Energy Physics, at the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, in Novosibirsk, Russia, from 1 to 5 September. Some 85 scientists from Armenia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, UK, Ukraine, United States and Russia took part in the event.

The Seminar offered a forum to discuss the latest achievements and challenges in the field of high energy physics and to identify perspectives of future development and further technology transfer to areas such as medicine and informatics. Ongoing and planned collaboration between CERN and ISTC was discussed as well. The contribution of young scientists was underlined during a special session in which 19 presentations were given by young scientists under 35 year old. The prize for best research was attributed to Kirill Skovpen from Budker INP with the project "ATLAS sensitivity to left-right symmetry at 7 TeV."

Main topics of the seminar:

• The overall framework
