Antimatter matters: Cold antihydrogen is the simplest form of antimatter which will allow us to study the fundamental properties of the universe such as the CPT symmetry and the gravitational interaction between matter and antimatter with extreme precision. Until recently it was quite difficult to handle antimatter, but the research field has developed enormously in the last couple of years, particularly with respect to basic techniques for manipulating antihydrogen as well as antiprotons and positrons which compose it. The field is now moving toward new steps such as high-precision spectroscopy of antihydrogen atoms, production of antihydrogen ions, and multiply-differential collision experiments. Thanks to the developments described above, the construction of the ELENA (Extra Low ENergy Antiproton) ring was approved by the CERN Council this year, and this also promises to lead to major advances in the field. Considering the circumstances above, we think now is the right time to organize a compact workshop where major potential players working on cold antimatter research and on high-precision science can gather together to discuss the present status and prospects for the near future. This workshop is part of a series of workshops held in the last several years such as Physics with Slow Antiproton Beams in 2005 and Cold Antimatter Plasmas and Application to Fundamental Physics (pbar08) in 2008.
For those who are interested in joining the workshop, please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information before October 30th (We strongly recommend to register as soon as possible as the total number of possible attendees will be limited to less than 50):
You will find the online reservation site for "Cold Antimatter and High Precision Physics (Pbar11) Plan (BB)", then reserve your room following your schedule and preference.
