Along with the direct searches of new particles at the LHC, low-energy phenomenology offers many complementary ways to search for physics beyond the Standard Model. The low-energy searches, however, are often hindered by the insufficiently precise knowledge of hadronic contributions. The purpose of this meeting is to cross-examine the empirical and theoretical progress in our understanding of these contributions in the context of various searches of new physics. The SCOPE is limited to systematically improvable calculations in QCD (e.g., pQCD, lattice QCD, EFTs) and model-independent dispersive frameworks.
This time we plan to focus on the high-precision analyses in the following SUBTOPICS:
- Muon g-2: hadronic vacuum polarization, light-by-light scattering
- Flavor transitions of light hadrons and interplay with B-decay anomalies
- Hadronic inputs for direct searches of Dark Matter: sigma terms
- Proton radius puzzle: muonic hydrogen Lamb shift and hyperfine structure
