High Energy Particle Physics Group

The High Energy Particle Physics Group welcomes all members of the Institute to its web pages and invites them to become a member of the Group.

Our activities focus on a number of half-day meetings each year on topics that are suggested by group members, and an annual three or four-day conference, often held jointly with other related IOP groups. The committee helps organise these and also works to represent the group members as we engage with the IOP and external bodies.

A particular feature of the annual conferences is the opportunity for all third-year PhD students to present their work in a conference presentation, and for PhD students in general to contribute to a poster session where prizes are on offer for the best posters. There are also plenary sessions with talks which cover the full range of particle physics research, given by researchers from across the UK as well as international speakers.

Please do not hesitate to contact the group officers (details are to the left) for further information on any of our activities.

IOP HEPP group congratulates Nobel winners
On behalf of the members of the IOP HEPP group, the committee would like to congratulate Profs Takaaki Kajita and Art McDonald, leading figures in the Super-Kamiokande and SNO experiments, on the news that they have been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. The discovery of neutrino oscillations, which is celebrated by this year's prize, has led to what is now one of the most vibrant fields in the area of particle physics, with many experimental collaborations pursuing high-precision measurements of neutrino properties through a diverse range of techniques, which together are fundamentally changing our understanding of the Universe. UK particle physicists continue to collaborate with Profs Kajita and McDonald and their colleagues through the T2K, Hyper-K and SNO+ experiments, as part of its wider neutrino physics programme, and we look forward to our communities making further exciting and fundamental discoveries in this fast-moving field.

Dr Fabiola Gianotti
The IOP High Energy Particle Physics Group warmly congratulates Dr Fabiola Gianotti for her selection as the next Director General of CERN, and wishes her every success as she leads CERN through the important and exciting years ahead.
