POSTPONED due to Covid-19

Due to the current Covid situation we had to postpone the LF(U)V Workshop. The new dates will be announced as soon as possible. If you have any questions please contact: lfuv-workshop@physik.uzh.ch


This workshop focuses on lepton flavor violation (LFV) and lepton flavor universality violation (LFUV) in particle physics. Searches for these effects are particularly promising tests of the Standard Model (SM) as they involve very clean observables within the reach of current and near-future experiments. Hints for LFUV have shown up in different semileptonic B decays at LHCb and in other experiments. If confirmed, this would be a clear sign for physics beyond the SM, requiring the development of new fundamental theories. 

This workshop is geared towards young researchers (of both theoretical and experimental particle physics) and aims at giving them the opportunity to gain a better overview of the theory and current efforts in the experimental searches for lepton flavour (universality) violation. Theoretical review talks and more in-depth presentations on recent theoretical and experimental developments will be given by leading experts in the field. During and after all presentations there will be ample time for exchange and discussions. Furthermore, a platform will be offered to the young researchers to present their current work.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Wolfgang Altmannshofer (UC Santa Cruz)

  • Marzia Bordone (Turin U.)

  • Sacha Davidson (U. Montpellier)

  • Javier Fuentes-Martín (Mainz U., MITP)

  • Martin Hoferichter (Bern U.)

  • Angela Papa (PSI)

  • Nicola Serra (Zurich U.)

  • Peter Stangl (Bern U.)

The workshop will be held at the University of Zurich in Switzerland on January 12-14, 2022, and is planned to take place completely on-site. Alternative formats will only be considered if the COVID situation in Switzerland and Europe does not allow for a mere on-site event.

Important dates:
Abstract submission deadline: 05.12.2021
Registration deadline: 19.12.2021


Funding by the UZH Graduate Campus and the Pauli Center for Theoretical Studies is gratefully acknowledged.


Fiona Kirk, Claudio Andrea Manzari, Julie Pagès, Nudžeim Selimović, and Felix Wilsch


Participants might also be interested in the Zurich Phenomenology Workshop (ZPW) taking place at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich just before the LF(U)V Workshop on January 10-11, 2022. Notice that two separate registrations are required to attend both workshops.
