The II Parma School of Theoretical Physics (XVI Seminario Nazionale di Fisica Teorica)  will be held  on the University Campus from September 3 to 8.  This year's School aims at promoting a common background in   in the application of  Quantum Field Theory to the  Physics of LHC. The School consists of academic lectures and discussion sessions. There will be plenty of time for other activities in the Campus of Parma University, sports, culture, sightseeing. The School, since last year, is open to students from all countries. Official language will be English.
