2013 Shanghai Particle Physics and Cosmology Symposium (SPCS2013)will take place at Shanghai Jiao Tong University(SJTU), China on June 3-5, 2013. This will be the third of annual symposium series. The purpose of the Shanghai Symposium is to gather top-notch researchers in particle physics and cosmology, review the major progress of the field, envision possible breakthroughs in the near future, and discuss long-term perspectives. Considering the historic discovery of the Higgs-like boson at LHC in July, 2012,the main focus of the SPCS2013 will be on Higgs,new physics at LHC and dark matter searches. This symposium will also provide an opportunity to build closer ties between the Chinese and international physics communities and to stimulate fundamental physics researches in China.
