XVIII Mexican School of Particles and Fields

21-27 October 2018

Hermosillo, Sonora

 The Mexican School of Particles and Fields (MSPF) is organized every two years by the Division of Particles and Fields (DPyC) of the Mexican Physical Society. This year the MSPF will be a joint school together with the 2018 University of Sonora School of High Energy Physics (USHEP). The MSPF is designed to complement the education of advanced graduate students and young postdocs working in High Energy Physics in Mexico and abroad. The USHEP school was designed to attract new students to the new HEP program at the University of Sonora. The schools have been organized to complement each other and will take place in the colonial city of Hermosillo, Sonora, from the 21st to the 27th of October 2018.


The format of the joint school will consist of several courses devoted to advanced topics in elementary particle physics, taught from a modern perspective, to be delivered by well known specialists in different areas of high energy physics. The program will include theoretical and experimental review seminars on the latest developments in the field. Poster sessions will be included too, aimed to allow the participants to show their research, and to enhance the interaction of the students with the speakers. An excursion to a beautiful beach is planned as well as a special dinner and a public lecture at the University of Sonora.
