Welcome to the Top 2017!

The 10th International Workshop on Top Quark Physics, TOP 2017, will be held in the city of Braga, in Portugal, from September 17th to 22nd. Following the long tradition of the workshop, the communities of experimental and theoretical physicists working on top quark physics are brought together once again.

The 2017 edition of the Workshop will be dedicated to the overview of the most up-to-date experimental measurements and latest theoretical developments on top quark Physics, as well as searches for Physics Beyond the Standard Model. An important aim of the Workshop is to provide the opportunity for in-depth discussions on the current results as well as on planning the forthcoming measurements, from the Run 2 of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to future machines.

With its beauty and history, Braga will be a great venue to celebrate the remarkable milestone of reaching the 10th edition of the Workshop. We look forward to seeing you this September!
