The 7th Theory Canada conference will take place at the University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
The Theory Canada meeting is a national conference in theoretical physics, organized by the Division of Theoretical Physics (DTP) of the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP). It is offered as a satellite meeting of the CAP Annual Congress, to be held in 11-15 June 2012 at the University of Calgary.
The Theory Canada conference provides a venue for the Canadian theoretical physics community to meet, interact, and share new research results with colleagues from across the country. Theory Canada 7 will focus on areas of advanced fundamental physics of much current interest: particle physics, nuclear physics, cosmology, classical and quantum gravity, string theory, field theory, mathematical physics and condensed matter theory.
The previous venues for Theory Canada were the University of British Columbia, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, the Université de Montréal, the University of Alberta, the University of New Brunswick, and the Memorial University of Newfoundland (Corner Brook campus).
Registration deadline is 15 May 2012.
For a talk or a poster, an abstract must be submitted by 30 April 2012.
A list of abstracts will be made available when they are submitted.
The Canadian Journal of Physics (CJP) has agreed to publish the proceedings of Theory Canada 7. All speakers are urged to write up an account of their presentations. The deadline for manuscript submission will be 30 September 2012. Each invited talk will be allotted a maximum of 4 journal pages, and each contributed talk 2. Abstracts of poster presentations will also be published. All contributions to the proceedings will be refereed according to the normal standards and procedures of CJP. The guest editors for this issue will be Saurya Das, Arundhati Dasgupta, Valerio Faraoni and Mark Walton.
University ResidencesTo reserve a room in the university residences, you must fill out the TC7 room reservation form, and send it to Conference Services, either by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at 403-329-5166 (phone: 403-329-2244).
Theory Canada 7 covers the accommodation costs of invited speakers. Through the generous support of sponsors, we hope to do the same for all student participants, and provide at least partial support for postdocs.
