Future of Fundamental Physics
Future Accelerators and Experiments in High Energy Particle Physics and beyond
27-29 August 2017
The briefing for this workshop was: “…to address the future of fundamental physics in an interdisciplinary manner. The workshop will outline future accelerators and experiments in High Energy Particle Physics as well as experimental facilities related to all subjects of ICNFP 2017, from particle physics to quantum optics, astrophysics and gravity”. This is a vast theme, and invariably only a small corner of subject space can be covered in two and a half days of a workshop. Nevertheless, we have amassed a good number of speakers, all of them experts in their field and holding positions of responsibility, who will be giving mostly review talks. Large infrastructure future projects will be discussed and the way to persuade society about their relevance will be addressed.
We will also have a round table discussion where you will get your chance to listen to the views of our panel members, all of them having an opinion that counts and who can shape our field. The round table will take place on Sunday 27 August at 19:00 in the main amphitheatre. The subject is “High Energy Physics after the LHC”. After a brief statement by each of the panel members, the floor will be given to the audience with their questions.
The workshop proper will be held on 28-29 August.
Enjoy the workshop!
