1973 - 2013
International Conference on the Structure and the Interactions of the Photon including the 20th International Workshop on Photon-Photon Collisions and the International Workshop on High Energy Photon Linear Colliders
12-22 RC08
4 PLace Jussieu Paris 5
This conference is a part of the series initiated in 1973 in Collège de France (Paris), as an International Colloquium on Photon-Photon Collisions at Electron-Positron Storage Rings, devoted to the hadronic interaction of photons. The latest Photon conferences took place in Spa(2011), Hamburg/DESY (2009), Paris (2007), Warsaw (2005) and in Frascati (2003). At the conference, recent progress in understanding photon-photon and photon-proton processes will be presented. In addition, recent results on astrophysics and other related topics will be discussed.
This year's conference will cover the following topics:
  • QCD and photons at high energy, jets, quarkonia and heavy flavours
  • Higgs and photons, electroweak interactions and physics beyond the standard model
  • Small x, diffraction, and total cross sections
  • Exclusive channels and resonances
  • Low-energy photon experiments, vacuum polarisation and light-by-light scattering
  • Photons in astroparticle physics
  • Photon collider prospects and new acceleration techniques and future accelerators
  • g-2 related topics
