XXXII Physics in Collision 2012

September 12 - 15, 2012, Štrbsk√© Pleso, Slovakia

The international symposium on Physics in Collision (PIC) is a conference whose focus is to update key topics in elementary particle physics in which new results have been published in the last year or are reasonably expected to be so before the next symposium. The aim of presentations is to encourage informal discussions of new experimental results and their implications. A small number of presentations will be reserved for "hot topics" which become available near the time of a symposium. The topics at the symposium cover a wide range of physics subjects from experimental and theoretical accelerator-based particle physics to astroparticle physics. Specially, the meeting topics include ElectroWeak phenomena, QCD, neutrino physics, heavy flavour physics, and beyond-Standard-Model physics.

Invited oral presentations are made in plenary sessions, and there are contributed presentations in poster sessions. The poster session is open to contributions from all participants. To selected posters short talks will be allocated in plenary session. All abstracts for posters having potential interest to the particle-physics community are welcome. This includes topics such as current experimental measurements, detectors, future experiments and facilities, theoretical ideas, etc., a broader range of topics than that of the plenary invited talks. Accepted posters will be displayed during the conference, even though only a fraction will also have a short oral advertisement in plenary session. Poster acceptance will be based on abstracts submitted to the organizers.

The PIC symposium series began in 1981 in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA. The program of the symposium is composed of invited talks and contributions in poster session.
