The aim of the Symposium is to bring together experts on the field of Discrete Symmetries in order to discuss its prospects on the eve of the LHC era. The general state of the art for CP, T and CPT symmetries will be reviewed and their interplay with Baryogenesis, Early Cosmology, Quantum Gravity and the Dark Sector of the Universe will be emphasised. Connections with physics beyond the Standard Model, in particular Supersymmetry, will be investigated. Experimental implications in current and proposed facilities will receive particular attention.

  • The Quantum Vacuum
  • Entanglement, Symmetrisation Principle
  • CPT in Quantum Gravity and String Theory, Decoherence, Lorentz Violation
  • Ultra-high-energy Messengers
  • Time Reversal
  • CP Violation: CKM and Beyond
  • Neutrino Mass, Mixing and CP
  • Baryogenesis, Leptogenesis
