The 4th Workshop on the CKM Unitarity Triangle (CKM2006) will be held in Nagoya, Japan on December 12-16, 2006.

This is the fourth in a series of workshops on the CKM Unitarity Triangle. The first workshop was held at CERN in February 2002, the second workshop was in Durham in April 2003 and the third workshop was at UC San Diego in March 2005.

The CKM2006 will fall at a time when the B factories are accumulating integrated luminosity close to 1ab-1 in sum of the two machines at SLAC and KEK, that allows us more accurate determination of the angles and sides of the Unitarity Triangle. It is also the time when we expected to have many new results on the Bs sector, such as the announced Bs0- Bs0 oscillations, from the Tevatron Run-II, and also on the charm sector, which play an important role as inputs for the CKM physics, from both CLEO-C and the B factories. New results are also expected in Kaon physics. It will be exciting to see their impact on the determination of CKM matrix, together with precise theoretical tools being developed in the phenomenology and lattice community. It is also interesting to discuss the prospects at the next generation experiments, such as LHCb, Super-B and those at J-PARC.

The organization of the workshop will be similar to the previous workshop. The workshop will be a culmination of the effort of six working groups. A few talks are expected for plenary sessions. More details of the CKM2006 workshop will be announced from this URL. We encourage you to check this HP time to time.
