SCET Workshop 2009

March 24-26, 2009
The Center for Theoretical Physics
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Cambridge, MA 02139

Overview

This workshop is the sixth in a series of annual meetings started in 2003. The goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers interested in effective field theory applications to collider and heavy-flavor physics, and the interface with other field theory methods for studying QCD. In order to ensure an informal atmosphere with lots of discussion time, attendance is limited to about 50 participants.
