EPS-HEP2017 5-12 July, 2017 Venice, Italy

The European Physical Society Conference on High Energy Physics (EPS-HEP) is one of the major international conferences that review the field. It takes place every other year since 1971. It is organized by the High Energy and Particle Physics Division of the European Physical Society in cooperation with an appointed European Local Institute of Research or an internationally recognized University or Academy Body.

EPS-HEP 2017 was held on 5-12 July in Venice, Italy at Palazzo del Cinema and Palazzo del Casinò, located in the Lido island. The conference has been organized by the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) and by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Padova.

Jointly organized by the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, and the Stefan Meyer Institute for Subatomic Physics of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the 23rd edition of this conference took place in Vienna, Austria. Among the topics covered were Accelerators, Astroparticle Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation, Detector R&D and Data Handling, Education and Outreach, Flavour Physics and Fundamental Symmetries, Heavy Ion Physics, Higgs and New Physics, Neutrino Physics, Non-Perturbative Field Theory and String Theory, QCD and Hadronic Physics, as well as Top and Electroweak Physics.

EPS-HEP 2013 18-24 July, 2013 Stockholm, Sweden
The 2013 Europhysics conference on High Energy Physics is a biennial conference organized by the High Energy and Particle Physics Division of the European Physical Society since 1971. The conference in this series usually attracts 600-700 participants and is one of the worlds largest conferences in this field. The latest conferences in this series were held in Grenoble, Krakow, Manchester, Lisabon and Aachen. The conference has parallel, plenary and poster sessions as well as an industrial exhibition. The conference is jointly organised by the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Chalmers University of Technology, Lund University, Uppsala University, Nordita and the Oskar Klein Centre.

Topics covered are: Standard Model and Beyond Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Neutrino Physics Flavour Physics CP Violation and Tests of Fundamental Symmetries QCD and Hadronic Physics Heavy Ions Astroparticle Physics High Energy Astrophysics Cosmology Non-perturbative Field Theory String Theory Detectors and Data Handling Accelerator R&D Future Facilities

Special ECFA session 20 July: Particle Physics after the European strategy update

EPS-HEP2011 21-27 July 2011 Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes France
EPS-HEP is one of the major international conferences that review every second year the state of our knowledge of the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions. Approximately 750 physicists from all continents gathered in 2011 to present and discuss their latest findings. For a full week, results obtained in terrestrial laboratories or through observations of the Universe were confronted with the most recent theoretical developments. Advances in particle detection and in acceleration techniques were also presented. EPS-HEP 2011 was the first major world conference after extensive operation of the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at an energy of 7 TeV, and one of the last scientific events before the final shutdown of the Tevatron collider scheduled in September 2011. Reports of new and potentially exciting observations made at LHC, at other international laboratories and from programs in astroparticle physics and cosmology were made. With eleven parallel sessions and an extended poster display, almost five hundred oral and written contributions were given. On July 23rd, the conference also hosted the traditional joint ECFA-EPS open session that served as the kick-off meeting for the update of the European Strategy in High Energy Physics. The conference was held in Grenoble, France, in the Rhône-Alpes region. This region is the home of several major research centers in fundamental and applied scientific research as well as a large and active high-energy physics community. Seven regional laboratories (LPSC, IPAG, ILL, IPNL , LAPP, LAPTh, Institut Néel) carried out the local organization of the conference.

hep2001 12-18 July 2001 Budapest, Hungary

This major biennial forum of high energy and particle physics followed the traditions of the series, in particular the successful previous conferences of Tampere (1999), Jerusalem (1997) and Brussels (1995). The conference programme started with three days of presentation of original results in thematic parallel sessions. After a break on 15th of July (the excursion day) it continued with plenary talks summarising the most recent outstanding results and discussing the perspectives of particle physics. See the home page of the Conference for details. Among other information one can find there the Conference Programme and the scanned-in transparencies of the talks.

The conference was organised at the new campus of Roland Estvss University in Budapest and had more than 600 participants mostly from European countries but with significant attendance from North and South America, Asia and Africa as well.

In addition to the scientific programme outstanding scientists were awarded prizes of the European Physical Society: the 2001 High Energy Particle Physics Prize as well as three newly founded awards: the Prize for Young Particle Physicists, the Gribov Medal honouring a young theoretical particle physicist and the Outreach Prize for the best popularisation of particle physics discoveries.

Prof. Donald Perkins (Oxford University) has been awarded the High Energy and Particle Physics Prize of the European Physical Society "For his outstanding contributions to Neutrino Physics and for implementing the use of Neutrinos as a tool to elucidate the Quark Structure on the Nucleon."

The Young Particle Physicist Prize was granted to Dr. Arnulf Quadt (Bonn University) "For his outstanding contribution to the measurement of the F2 Structure Function in Deep Inelastic Scattering and extending its measurement to low values of momentum transfer and fractional momentum x."

The Gribov Medal was given to Prof. Steven S. Gubser (Caltech) "For his outstanding work that has revealed a deep connection between gauge theories and gravitational interactions in the framework of string theories. This made it possible to compute and understand interesting properties of a gauge theory in 3+1 dimensions from a gravitational theory in 4+1 dimensions."

Outreach Prizes were given to Dr. Christine Sutton (Oxford University) and Prof. Erik Johansson (Stockholm University) "For their innovative use of electronic and printed media to bring HEP to wider public, including professional colleagues, students and schools, and in particular their collaboration developing computer interactive packages for educational master classes."

The Local Organizing Committee invited all prize winners to deliver talks during the HEP2001 Conference at a special Prizewinner's Session.
