Location:  Bloomington, IN, U.S.A.

The Sixth Meeting on CPT and Lorentz Symmetry will be held in the Physics Department, Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, on June 17-21, 2013. The meeting will focus on tests of these fundamental symmetries and on related theoretical issues, including scenarios for possible violations. You are cordially invited to attend and participate in this event. Topics to be covered include:

Experimental and observational searches for CPT and Lorentz violation involving
– accelerator and collider experiments
– atomic, nuclear, and particle decays
– birefringence, dispersion, and anisotropy in cosmological sources
– clock-comparison measurements
– CMB polarization
– electromagnetic resonant cavities and lasers
– tests of the equivalence principle
– gauge and Higgs particles
– high-energy astrophysical observations
– laboratory and gravimetric tests of gravity
– matter interferometry
– neutrino oscillations and propagation, neutrino-antineutrino mixing
– oscillations and decays of K, B, D mesons
– particle-antiparticle comparisons
– post-newtonian gravity in the solar system and beyond
– second- and third-generation particles
– sidereal and annual time variations, compass asymmetries
– space-based missions
– spectroscopy of hydrogen and antihydrogen
– spin-polarized matter
– time-of-flight measurements

Theoretical and phenomenological studies of CPT and Lorentz violation involving
– physical effects at the level of the Standard Model, General Relativity, and beyond
– origins and mechanisms for violations
– classical and quantum field theory, particle physics, classical and quantum gravity, string theory
– mathematical foundations, Finsler geometry
