Partikeldagarna 2021 will be held at Chalmers University of Technology on November 22nd-23rd, 2021. The meeting is organised by a local organising committee and members of the Particle and Astroparticle Physics Section of the Swedish Physical Society (Fysikersamfundet). It starts on Monday at 9:30 am with a welcome coffee and ends on Tuesday at 6 pm (the social dinner is on November 22nd).
The aim of the meeting is to have a status report and a professional discussion on current particle and astroparticle physics research in Sweden. Partikeldagarna 2021 will follow the same structure as previous years, with a mix of talks given by individual (preferably young) researchers presenting their work, group reports and summaries from funding agencies and international organisations where Sweden is represented.
We strive for a safe, in-person event. To this end, Partikeldagarna 2021 will take place in a lecture hall that can host almost 300 participants under normal circumstances. Unfortunately, this implies a slightly higher conference fee than in previous editions, and a contribution from both in-person and virtual participants. Virtual participation will be made possible via a livestream of all talks. This option is intended for those who prefer not to attend the event in person because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
We know that these are extraordinary times. We nevertheless hope to see you in person at Chalmers soon!
The registration fee for in-person (virtual) participation is 750 SEK (550 SEK). See payment instructions link.
As in previous years, participation to Partikeldagarna is restricted to members of the Swedish Physical Society. Membership can be obtained through the payment of an annual fee. Master students are exempted from this restriction. Further information can be found here.
Partikeldagarna will feature two invited speakers covering hot topics in particle and astroparticle physics:
- Felix Kahlhoefer, RWTH Aachen University, Germany; "Dark matter beyond the WIMP paradigm"
- Anna Driutti, University of Pisa, Italy; "First results from the Muon g-2 experiment"
The event will also feature a session on diversity in physics. One of the speakers in that session is Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, leader of Genie (Gender Initiative for Excellence), who will be happy to engage in a discussion on gender in physics during the coffee break following her talk.
