Despite the success of the Standard Model, there is an overwhelming phenomenological evidence that strongly suggests the need for new physics. In particular, the existence of Dark Matter, neutrino masses, the observed baryon asymmetry and the need for a more fundamental understanding of the gauge and flavour structures are strongly calling for New Physics.
The BSM2 meeting aims at bringing together theoretical and experimental Particle Physicists in close collaboration with Cosmologists and Relativists in order to share their state of the art research as well as foster new ideas and collaborations. The central goal of the meeting is to understand what are the potential avenues in the search for New Physics, how can it be detected and which theories can offer the best candidate solutions. The topics to discuss aim at covering Flavour Physics, Higgs Physics, Neutrino Physics, Dark Matter, Phase Transitions and Primordial Gravitational Waves.
Format of the meeting
The BSM2 workshop is thought to be fully in-person and offer a friendly atmosphere to stimulate rich discussions involving not only senior researchers but also students. It will promote scientific talks about state-of-the-art research developments as well as tutorials relevant for students and researchers working in the subjects of the workshop.
The BSM2 meeting is hosted by the gr@v group at Aveiro University and is supported by the FCT projects PTDC/FIS-PAR/31000/2017, UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020.
