This Symposium is the fifth in a sequence, held at three or four-year intervals. The first symposium was held at the University of Heidelberg in June 1999; the second was held in Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod in June 2003. The third and fourth symposia were held in Centerville, Cape Cod in June 2006, and July 2010. Topics to be discussed are the electron and muon magnetic moments; the searches for permanent electric dipole moments of the electron, muon, neutron, deuteron, atomic systems, and radioactive nuclei; as well as the transition moments that could cause charged lepton flavor violation. The meeting will begin after breakfast on Monday morning, July 21st and will end immediately after lunch on Thursday, July 24th. Click on "Travel" for directions to the conference site.

The meeting will be held 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 and searches for Standard-Model forbidden quantities.

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 is now closed.

See "Lodging/Costs" for a list of all costs including the registration fee. 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.
