RAD COR 2007

October 1-5, 2007

Florence, Italy

RADCOR 2007, the 8th International Symposium on Radiative Corrections "Application of Quantum Field Theory to Phenomenology", was held from the 1st to the 5th of October 2007, in Florence, Italy, at the Galileo Galilei Institute (GGI) for theoretical physics.

This is the eight symposium of this series. The main theme of these symposia is the application of quantum field theory to particle physics phenomenology in the high-energy regime. Recent developments in theoretical studies of the radiative corrections of the Standard Model and of its extensions are discussed and compared with available experimental data. Predictions for future experiments are presented.

The scientific program of RADCOR 2007 included the following topics:

- Phenomenology at high-energy colliders (HERA, Tevatron, RHIC, LHC, ILC);
- QCD physics of hard scattering;
- Electroweak radiative corrections, and applications to Standard Model and beyond Standard Model processes;
- New theoretical methods and tools;
- Event generators and simulation of signal and background processes;
- Heavy quarks (including B physics), and physics at B-factories and in e+e- collisions at lower energies;

and other related subjects.

RADCOR 2007 was be co-hosted by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and the Physics Department of the University of Florence.
