Scope & Purpose

Brookhaven Forum 2008 (BF2008) will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, NY, USA, November 6-8, 2008. The theme of BF2008 is "Terra Incognita: From LHC to Cosmology." As 2008 witnesses the dawn of the LHC era, the emphasis of this year's agenda will be LHC physics. However, part of the BF2008 program will be devoted to related cosmological and astrophysical questions, both in theory and experiment.  Presentations will be arranged in both plenary and parallel sessions.
