XVIII Physics in
Three-Day Plenary Session Conference
Frascati, June 17-19,1998
The annual Physics in Collision International Conferences
have attained a unique character over the years.
During the three days of plenary sessions, invited speakers give
an exhaustive but concise updating of the key topics
in elementary particle physics, with the aim of encouraging informal discussions
on experimental results and their implications.
The XVIII edition of Physics in Collision, sponsored by the INFN
and the National Laboratories of Frascati, will be held from the 17th to
the 19th of June, 1998 in the small historical town of Frascati, located
about 20 km south-east of Rome.
On the opening day, the
conference sessions will be held in the auditoriun of the High-Energy Building
of the Laboratories; the remaining sessions of the conference will be hosted
in the lecture hall of the residence of the Aldobrandini family in Frascati.
The INFN Laboratories of Frascati are well known
by the scientific community for having housed the first electron-positron
storage ring, ADA.
In 1997 the conference in Bristol celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of
the pion discovery. In 1998 at Frascati, the beginning of data taking at
the new high-intensity collider DAFNE will be celebrated.
Frascati itself is famous for its wine production,
its scenic beauty and its historical remains dating back to the Roman times.
The is a magnificent XVII-century family residence
