During the next few years the LHC will provide a wealth of experimental data that will address some of the most challenging questions in particle physics. In order to make full use of these data and to improve our understanding of the Standard Model as well as of the physics that may lie beyond it, it is important to have at our disposal precise lattice calculations. These are necessary to determine the properties and effects of the strong forces coming from QCD and/or from other new physical interactions relevant at the LHC energy frontier. In addition, lattice calculations will continue to be a key tool in the complementary area of heavy-ion experiments which have been, or are being, carried out at RHIC and the LHC respectively, and which access the exotic quark-gluon plasma phase of matter. The workshop will bring together leading experts in lattice gauge theory from around the world making it possible for them to interact closely over an extended period of time. This activity is expected to provide a significant boost to the already impressive precision of lattice calculations and increase their impact over the full range of forthcoming high-energy experimental data.

- Lattice vs. the Standard Model (flavour phenomenology, precision tests, search for new physics)
- Nuclear physics, resonances and multi-particle states
- QCD in extreme conditions (non-vanishing temperature and/or chemical potential)
- Non-QCD lattice models (electro-weak, strongly interacting and supersymmetric theories)
- Algorithm and machine developments

Aug, 28 2012 - 11:30 Francesco Negro Theta dependence of the deconfinement temperature in Yang-Mills theories Seminar We study the phase diagram of SU(3) pure gauge theory in the T-theta plane. The deconfinement transition temperature is seen to decrease in presence of a topological theta term. Results are obtained by lattice simulations at imaginary theta to go around the sign problem. Exploiting analytic continuation we determine the dependence of $T_c$ up to the quadratic term $R_theta$ in theta. Slides
