Now we are in the LHC era, in which we anticipate new physics beyond the Standard Model. In this exciting time, we would like to have a workshop on physics in the flat and warped extra dimensions such as the gauge-Higgs unification, universal extra dimension, Higgsless, and holographic models.

This workshop stresses theoretical developments as well as phenomenological consequences and experimental observations.  We encourage lively discussions and exchange of new ideas among participants.


Invited speakers include:
    Adam Falkowski
    Tony Gherghetta
    Kazunori Hanagaki (from ATLAS)
    James E. Hetrick*
    Choon-Lin Ho*
    Mitsuru Kakizaki
    Michiru Kaneda (from ATLAS)
    Yoshiharu Kawamura
    Donghee Kim (from CMS)
    C. S. Lim
    Shigeki Matsumoto
    Koji Nakamura (from ATLAS)
   
Yoichiro Nambu*
    Mariano Quiros
    Marco Serone
    Masaharu Tanabashi
    Bayram Tekin*

    *Invited for a session celebrating Yutaka Hosotani's “Kanreki,” his 60th birthday.
