VII Argentinian Symposium

on Theoretical Physics of Particles and Fields

San Carlos de Bariloche, January 12-23, 1998

 History of the Symposium
Valle Encantado
(updated on January 5, 1998)

The Simposium is devoted to several contemporary topics of interest in particle physics and field and string theories. The programme will consist of a series of lectures in the topics listed below plus 1-hour seminars. The courses (3-5 hours) are supposed to provide an introduction, explanation and overview of recent developments in the field. They are intended for an audience with basic knowledge of particle physics and field theory. 1-hour seminars are aimed to provide a more detailed presentation of most recent research results.
Just before the Symposium, the workshop Quantum Gravity in the Southern Cone is going to be held in the same facilities (January 7-10).
