Schedule and Scientific Program

The Seventh International Symposium on Heavy Flavor Physics will be held July 7-11, 1997 at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The symposium will consist of plenary sessions covering topics of current interest in Charm, Bottom, Top, and Tau Physics. It is open to all physicists with a strong interest in Heavy Flavor Physics.

The symposium will begin with registration and a dinner/reception Monday evening, July 7, on the grounds of the Institute for Theoretical Physics. The reception and registration will last from 5-9 pm, with food available from 6-8:30. The program will then be composed of morning and afternoon plenary sessions Tuesday through Friday.

More details about the scientific program will be posted as they become available. For information about registration, travel, and hotel arrangements, return the symposium's homepage
