1 Selected topics in high energy physics


The workshop is intended to bring together and facilitate discussions between theorists working on various phenomenological aspects of the Standard Model and New Physics. Topics include high energy unification of quark and lepton matter, the origin of fermionic flavors, dark matter and astroparticle physics, and approaches to strongly coupled quark systems in QCD.

The participation is by invitation only. There is no workshop fee.

Venue and accommodation
