Scientific programme

The scientific programme of the workshop comprises the following topics:

  • Top quark pair production: total cross section and differential distributions.
  • Single top quark processes.
  • Properties of the top quark: top quark mass, angular distributions, asymmetries, etc.
  • Search for new physics in top quark production and decay.
  • Role of the top quark in Higgs physics and supersymmetry.
  • Technical aspects of top physics: signal modeling, physics objects and major backgrounds .

The detailed programme of TOP 2013 is accessible via the conference INDICO page.

Social programme

A poster session will be held on Staufenberg castle close to the conference venue of Durbach (catering by Hotel Ritter, Durbach). We will organise transportation, but the castle can also be reached on foot!

One afternoon will be dedicated to an excursion to the town of Strasbourg (by bus) and a boat trip on the Ill river. After returning in the early evening, we will hold our workshop dinner in the Hotel Vierjahreszeiten.
