[Host: Bob Hirosky ]
Experimental particle physics has reached a threshold that promises new
and exciting insight into the fundamental structure of matter and the
origin of particle masses in coming years. Due to its large mass, the
top quark plays a key role in this quest for a deeper understanding of
nature. We are currently learning a lot about the top quark through
measurements at the Fermilab Tevatron. At the LHC at Cern, which starts
in 2008, the top quark will become a probe for new physics and a tool
for understanding mass generation. I will present our current
understanding of the top quark and discuss its role in finding the new
physics at the Tevatron and the LHC.
