2. Higgs - W. Murray (3 hours, 30 pages)
3. Flavour Physics - T. Gershon (3 hours, 30 pages)
4. Searches for New Physics - J. Richman (3 hours, 30 pages)

3. Tools

1. Monte Carlo tools - M. Seymour (3 hours, 30 pages)
2. Statistical Methods - G. Cowan (3 hours, 30 pages)

Guidance for authors

The proceedings must be typseset using the Springer SVMult latex tool package. Please download the zip file (link) with all relevant style files and examples.
- the Springer document class "svmult.cls"
- the Springer MakeIndex style file "svind.ist"
- the Springer MakeIndex style file "svindd.ist" - german version
- the Springer BibTeX styles "spbasic.bst", "spmpsci.bst", "spphys.bst"
- the sample text file "author.tex",
- the sample figure file "figure.eps"
- the sample reference file "referenc.tex"
- the pdf file "quickstart.pdf" with "essentials" for an easy implementation of the "SVMult" package (2 pages)
- the pdf file "refguide.pdf" describing the SVMult document class features independent of any specific style requirements.
- the pdf file "authsamp.pdf" as an example of a "contribution"

The deadline for the proceedings is 30 November 2012. Early submission is very much appreciated and will enhance the impact of the textbook.
