The Helmholtz International Summer School (HISS) - Dubna International Advanced School of Theoretical Physics (DIAS-TH) "Physics of Heavy Quarks and Hadrons", organized by the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, will be held from 18 to 30 July, 2016 in Dubna. It continues a series of workshops and schools held in Dubna (1993, 1996, 2000, 2002, 2005, 2008, 2013) and Bad Honnef (1994) and Rostock (1997).

The School will cover the main topics in heavy-flavor and strong-field physics. It will provide a first hand opportunity to a good number of graduate students and postdocs in high energy and high intensity physics. One focus is on latest results on heavy quark physics from all four experimental collaborations at the LHC (ATLAS, CMS, LHCb, ALICE) and from the B-factory at the KEK. The second focus concentrates on the high-intensity frontier and extreme states of matter as probed by current and upcoming high-power laser and high-Z ion facilities all around the world. Leading experts in these fields will read a series of lectures devoted to theoretical predictions and analyses of experimental results. 

The lectures and talks in the school are aimed at graduate students and postdocs, who are welcome to apply for partial support.
