Description

Several basic mysteries, including the nature of dark matter, the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry, the dynamics underlying neutrino masses, the structure of fermion masses and mixings, and the naturalness problems compel the search for a new paradigm in our description of matter and forces going beyond the Standard Model. With the expected completion of LHC Run II in late 2018, this conference will provide a timely opportunity to take stock of this effort with a broad overview of the latest experimental results and theoretical advances in the field. Special priority will be given to innovative experimental approaches and imaginative theoretical ideas likely to shape research directions in the near future. Through intense interaction and cooperation, physicists with diverse expertise across theory and experiment will strive to make progress on the fundamental questions at the frontiers of particle physics.

Application deadline is December 15,  2018
