Important advances in physics sometimes occur suddenly. A surprising observation, a startling experimental discovery, or a new theoretical breakthrough could often benefit from immediate, concentrated attention. Consequently, the KITP has initiated a program of “fast track” or “rapid response” workshops. We invite proposals at any time from prospective organizers within the following constraints:
- The workshop should begin within about six months of the time of the proposal.
- The duration of the workshop should be 1-3 weeks, usually 2 weeks.
- There should be 10-30 participants in total.
In other respects, you are limited only by your imagination!
Those interested in making such a proposal should simply fill out the pre-proposal form. We will strive to respond to program organizers within a matter of weeks.
Some of the past such workshops are listed and linked here:
- Iron-Based Superconductors
- Direct, Indirect and Collider Signals of Dark Matter
- Quantum Spin Hall Effect and Topological Insulators
- Interplay between Numerical Relativity and Data Analysis
- SRO and Chiral p-wave Superconductivity
- Electronic Properties of Graphene
- The Supersolid State of Matter
- Majorana Fermion Zero Modes in Solid-State Systems: Experiment and Theory
- Higgs Identification
- Black Holes: Complementarity, Fuzz, or Fire?
If you have any questions, please email or call (805-893-3979) the KITP Director, Lars Bildsten.
This initiative is co-sponsored by KITP and the Kavli Foundation.
