International Workshop on e+e- collisions from Phi to Psi



The International Workshop on e+e- collisions at low energies (From phi to psi 2011) will be held in the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics, Novosibirsk, Russia from September 19 to September 22, 2011. It is the 8th in a series of biennial Workshops that started at the University of Karlsruhe in 1996 in Karlsruhe, Germany. The previous Workshop was organized in 2009 by the Institute of High Energy Physics in Beijing, China.

Scientific Program

The aim of the Workshop is to review the status and progress in physics of low-energy e+e- collisions and related fileds. The main topics include:

  • Spectroscopy of light and heavy quarks
  • R measurements
  • Muon g-2
  • tau lepton physics
  • gamma gamma physics
  • Flavor (physics of K and D mesons)
  • Radiative corrections and ISR
  • Symmetries (lepton flavor violation, lepton universality)
  • Baryon Form factors
  • Machines and detectors

The program will consist of plenary and poster sessions.

Satellite Meeting

The Workshop will be followed by the Xth meeting of the Working Group on Radiative Corrections and Monte Carlo Generators for Low Energies, held on September 23-24. The aim of this Working Group is to bring together theorists and experimentalists in order to discuss the current status of radiative corrections and Monte Carlo generators at low energies. Further information on the working group and its previous meetings can be found at SIGHAD home page. Please do the additional registration, if you plan to attend the satellite meeting and send us the title of your talk and the time you need.

Xth meeting of the Working Group on Radiative Corrections and Monte Carlo Generators for Energies (September 23-24)


The Workshop proceedings will be published in Nuclear Physics B (Proceedings Supplements). All talks from the plenary and poster sessions of the Workshop will be published.
Contributions should be prepared in accordance with the standards of the journal and submitted to the Organizing Committee before December 15, 2011. Due to a tight publisher's deadline, the publication of contributions received after that deadline cannot be guaranteed.

The following strict rules will apply to all papers in order to be accepted for publication in the Proceedings:

  • General
  • Papers must be written in good, legible English and comply with the standards imposed by the publisher. It is recommended that papers be checked by colleagues working in related fields, but not necessary on the same project.
  • Style
  • Papers must be submitted in Latex, 2-column format with figures included in eps-format or pdf-format. The Latex Style File and a sample file with the instructions for the correct preparation of the papers can be downloaded by courtesy of Elsevier, the publishers of Nuclear Physics, at the following links:
    Latex sample paper, style file, and readme
  • Page limits
  • The maximum number of pages per paper including figures and tables is fixed for the different categories of papers as follows:

    • 6 pages for 25 minutes oral talks
    • 5 pages for 20'
    • 4 pages for 15'
    • 3 pages for posters
    Please check that your contributions respect the above limits.
  • Submission of papers for publication
  • The LaTeX file and the pdf/eps figure file(s) together with the complete pdf/postscript file of the entire paper must be sent by e-mail to as attachments.

Technical support for presentation

In the Workshop hall and in a restricted area nearby, wireless service will be available.

Please take into account that the standard electric voltage in mains in Russia is 220V/50Hz. The European type (German) of power supply connectors is used. Namely, the distance between centers of plugs in a socket is 18 mm, plug diameter is 4 mm.

All ORAL presentations will be presented from the computer in the Conference Hall. The presentations in Microsoft Power Point 2003/2007 and Adobe Acrobat formats will be accepted only (pdf format is preferable). Connection of your own laptop to the projector is not supported, thus we recommend you to prepare your presentation in the format mentioned above and upload all files (presentation, movies, etc.) to the computer in the Conference Hall during the coffee break or lunch. Representatives of the Organizing Committee will help you to copy your files and test the presentation.

There will be enough stands to accommodate all posters simultaneously. What we suggest is putting up your poster on Monday and taking it off on Thursday. You will only need to be near your poster on the day mentioned in the Program.

Each poster is displayed on one board: the usable area on the poster board is 90cm (roughly 35") wide and 120cm (roughly 47") high. An ISO A0 sized (118.9cm x 84.1cm) poster will fit vertically the board, an ANSI E (44" x 34") as well.


Participants of the Workshop will be offered single (default option) or double rooms in the hotel of the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Science "Zolotaya dolina" ("Golden Valley") located close to the Budker Institute (15 minutes by foot)

Address - Iliicha Street, 10, Novosibirsk, Russia, RU-630090.
Phone - +73833303609.
Web page - http://gold-valley.ru/?lang=en

The Organizing Committee has already reserved rooms in the "Golden Valley" Hotel for all participants.

Here are the types and the corresponding prices in rubles and Euro (assuming that 1 Euro = 40 rubles). Please note that these are special prices in case the Institute is making a reservation.

Room type Price (rubles) Price (Euro)
Suite - I 5800 145
Suite - II 3600 90
2-bed comf. 2600 65
1-bed comf. 2400 60
2-bed 1100 30
1-bed 650 20

The check-in time is noon. In addition to the prices above, guests have to add to their final bill 25% of one day price for the reservation. VISA and Master Card are accepted in the hotel.

Breakfast is not included in the hotel price and can be ordered in the hotel restaurant. During check-in you may ask an administrator to include breakfast to your bill and you will receive special coupons for every day of your stay in the Hotel. The breakfast cost is 250 Rubles (about 6 Euro).


Please note that all service (including hotel, meals, etc.) in Russia can be paid in Russian rubles only. 24h-bancomats operating with the VISA/MasterCard cards allow cash withdrawals in Russian rubles. It would be convenient to use ATMs in the hotel "Zolotya Dolina", in the post office near the hotel and in the BINP. In banks of the Academytown there is also cash currency exchange from US dollars and Euros. Some Novosibirsk banks also have a Western Union service. Several banks are located at the post office in the nearest building to the hotel. The BINP nearest bank office is MDM bank (5-7 minute walk from BINP). Banks hours are from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Social Program

The social program for participants and accompanying persons includes a welcome reception on Monday, September 19, a concert on Tuesday, September 20 and a Workshop dinner on Wednesday, September 21.


Lunch is included in the conference fee and will be served in the cafeteria of the Budker Institute. Please inform us about food limitations/preferences if any. Other meals are not included in the fee, except for the welcome reception and the banquet. A list of restaurants will be provided.


In September weather is usually mild, with temperatures varying between 10°C and 15°C. However, drastic changes of temperature are sometimes possible and we recommend to have some warm clothes and umbrella.
