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.
