This Symposium is the fourth in sequence, held at three or four-year intervals. The first symposium was held at the University of Heidelberg 8-12 June 1999; the second symposium was held in Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod 9-12 June 2003, and the third symposium was held in Centerville, Cape Cod 19-22 June 2006. Topics to be discussed are the electron and muon magnetic moments; the searches for permanent electric dipole moments of the electron, muon, neutron, deuteron, atoms, and radioactive nuclei; and the transition moment that could cause charged lepton flavor violation. The meeting will begin after breakfast on Monday morning, July 19th, and end by early afternoon Thursday, July 22th. Click on "Travel" for directions to the conference site.

The meeting will be held in at the Craigville Conference Center, Centerville Massachusetts, which is a short walk from a private beach on the Atlantic Ocean. The purpose of the meeting is to bring together investigators in atomic, nuclear, and particle physics who are interested in pursuing physics beyond the standard model, through precision measurements of anomalous magnetic moments, searches for permanent electric dipole moments of elementary systems, or searches for the charged lepton flavor violating transition moment, such as &mu- &rarr e- &gamma , or &mu- to e- conversion in the field of an atomic nucleus with no neutrinos.

Since space at the conference site is limited, participation is by invitation only. Every attempt will be made to accommodate all requests, but please apply as early as possible. For an invitation please contact the Conference Chair, B. Lee Roberts, at roberts@bu.edu. Registration will begin in early 2010.

The conference fee will be determined soon, but will be less for students than for other participants. See "Lodging/Costs" for a list of all costs. It can be paid with a credit card on-line as part of your registration. Meals or housing for companions are not included in the fee.

Housing will be at the conference center. Much of the accommodation is in shared rooms, but a number of single rooms will be available on a first-come first-served basis.

The average temperature on the Cape in July is 70s to 80s (average 78), but the evenings can still be cool, sometimes in the 60s. Be prepared for cool evenings and pleasant days. Rain is always a possibility. Bring something warm to wear if you are interested in going on a whale watch.

A book of interest to this community is the new book, Lepton Dipole Moments which contains review articles on the topics covered by this series of symposia that are written by some of the leading experts in the field.
