Brookhaven Forum 2013

Exploring Fundamental Interactions in the Higgs Era


Brookhaven Forum 2013 (BF2013) will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Upton, NY, USA, May 1-3, 2013. With the recent discovery of a Higgs-like particle at the LHC, the determination of the last unknown mixing angle in the neutrino sector, and the ongoing exploration of the Tera scale, we look forward to an exciting scientific program.

Talks will be arranged in both plenary and parallel sessions, covering the latest developments at the LHC, as well as topics in cosmology, astrophysics, and the intensity frontier.
