Summary

The Mexican School of Particles and Fields (MSPF) is organized every two years by the Division of Particles and Fields of the Mexican Physical Society. It is designed to gather experts in different areas of high energy physics to complement the specialized education of advanced graduate students and young postdocs and to promote national and international collaboration between participants.
This year the school is jointly organized with the Mesoamerican Centre for Theoretical Physics (MCTP).

The format of the school will consist of several courses devoted to advanced topics in elementary particle physics taught from a modern perspective by well-known specialists in the field. The school will also include theoretical and experimental review seminars on the latest developments in High Energy Physics.
A poster session will allow participants to show their research results and to enhance interaction between students and invited speakers.
