Summer School on Particle Physics, Cosmology and Strings
August 6  18, 2007
Perimeter Institute

The Summer School on Particle Physics, Cosmology and Strings is the 5th in
an ongoing series offered by Perimeter Institute and PIMS. The summer
school is targeted at 40 advanced graduate students in high energy physics
with interests in at least one of the research areas of particle physics,
cosmology and/or string theory.
The 1st, 2nd and 4th editions of this
summer school were held at
the
University of British Columbia. The 3rd edition was held at
Perimeter
Institute.
Broadly, the lecture courses at the school will revolve around the
following themes: In particle physics, the content is aimed at helping
students gain the basic tools to journey through the LHC era; in
cosmology, the content is aimed at giving students the necessary
background to follow the developments coming from WMAP; in string theory,
the content is aimed at the developments directly connected to particle
physics and cosmology.
