Dear Colleagues,


We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 15th Lomonosov Conference on Elementary Particle Physics which will be held from 18 to 24 August, 2011 at the Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia.


The conference is organized by the Faculty of Physics and Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Research of Moscow State University in cooperation with Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna), Institute for Nuclear Research (Moscow), Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Physics (Moscow), Institute for High Energy Physics (Protvino), Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics (Novosibirsk), Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Agency for Science and Innovations of Russia, Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Agency for Atomic Energy and the Dmirty Zimin Dynasty Foundation and Interregional Centre for Advanced Studies .


The Lomonosov Conferences bring together about 300 theorists and experimentalists to review the present status and future prospects in elementary particle physics. The programme of the 15th Lomonosov Conference will include:


Electroweak Theory, Tests of Standard Model and Beyond,


Neutrino Physics, Astroparticle Physics,


Gravitation and Cosmology,


Developments in QCD (Perturbative and Non-Perturbative Effects),


Heavy Quark Physics,


Physics at the Future Accelerators.



The working time of the conference is distributed among three types of talks:


--- Review Talks (25 min) that will be held on the morning sessions of the conference,

--- Session Reports (20 min) in the afternoon,

--- Brief Reports (15 min) in the afternoon,

--- Special Sessions of short presentations (5-10 min) is also planned for the



As it was for the previous conferences of this series, the proceedings of the 15th Lomonosov Conference will be published as a book by World Scientific Publ. Co., Singapore.


By the tradition that has started from 1995, the Lomonosov Conferences on particle physics are accompanying by the conferences on problems of intellectuals. The 9th International Meeting on Problems of Intellectuals will be held during the 15th Lomonosov Conference on August 24, 2011. All interested persons are invited to propose their individual talks and also to participate in discussions that will be held during the meeting.



Interested persons are kindly asked to make registration to attend (to fill in and send to the Organizing Committee the Application Form) before May 15, 2011. This can be done directly from our web site (English_conferences_15LomCon)

or by e-mail to the Conference organizers.


We should be very grateful if you could inform your collaborators and colleagues who might be interested in attending the meeting.


Sincerely yours,
