With the inception of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN and in anticipation of new exciting data at the end of the year 2008, a High Energy Physics conference is organized in synchrony with this historic occasion. This also represents an opportunity to reminisce the fundamental achievements of HEP physics since Solvay 1933. Then, it was signposted by Enrico Fermi's paper on the 4-fermion weak interaction theory published on December 31 1933, two months after the Solvay Congress October 1933.
Many distinguished contributors to particle physics have been invited to this year's event, including Professor Gerard 't Hooft (Nobel Laureate, 1999), Professor Martin Perl (Nobel Laureate, 1995), Professor Harald Fritzsch, and many others. In addition, several budding physicists (both theorists and LHC experimentalists) have been invited to congregate for discussion and presentation of their works here in Singapore at the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
We would like to specially invite you to participate in this exciting conference in celebration of the new LHC era, witnessing the exchange of scientific information and camaraderie of the High Energy Physics community. Invited presentations will be included in the Conference Proceedings and published as a special issue in the International Journal of Modern Physics A, (IJMPA).
