San Miniato 1997

The 5th Topical Seminar on "The irresistible rise of the Standard Model" has already taken place in San Miniato al Todesco, Italy, from 21 to 25 april 1997.


The proceedings of the 5th Topical seminar will be published in camera-ready form in Nuclear Physics B (Proceedings Supplement) . The dead-line for submitting the manuscripts to the editors was 30 june 1997. The address for submission is

F.-L. Navarria, Dip. di Fisica, V.le Berti-Pichat 6/2, I-40127 BOLOGNA



The Seminar is the fifth in a series devoted to experimental and theoretical results in high-energy particle physics and astrophysics. The previous ones were held in 1985 [Few and many quarks systems], 1987 [Heavy Flavours], 1991 [Heavy Flavours] and 1992 [The Standard Model and just beyond]. The 1997 Seminar will focus on the latest results from LEP, including the 1996 run at high energy, SLD, Cornell, Tevatron, HERA and fixed target experiments. Relevant results in cosmic ray astrophysics experiments will be also discussed, with emphasis on their correlations to accelerator experiments. The format of the Seminar will be based on reviews talks summarizing the progress in the major sectors, electroweak physics, heavy flavours, searches for new particles and new phenomena. Shorter talks will discuss subsectors and present contributions on specific items. The presentation of posters is also foreseen.


Electroweak physics
Heavy flavours
Searches for new particles and new phenomena
Advances in theory


Attendance will be by invitation only and will be limited to 
approximately one hundred physicists. Participants are expected 
to attend the full Seminar. Interested physicists should write 
to the Organizing Committee.


The registration fee is 200 SF.
