If you have not secured lodging, please do so ASAP.  There are two other events happening at the University of Kansas the same weekend:  NASA Eyes KU NASA’s 60th anniversary Symposium and the 2019 GPRM-AAG Annual Meeting.  This may make lodging more difficult.


Particle Physics on the Plains will be held on October 12-13, 2019, at the University of Kansas. The workshop facilitates a discussion about the latest results in particle phenomenology and theory among  particle theorists in the region.

Talks are intended to be mostly student/postdoc talks.  If there is room in the schedule, we will add faculty talks.  Nevertheless, this is an excellent opportunity for faculty to keep up on research in the region and gather for lengthy discussions.

September 8, 2019  There are funds available to help support lodging for students and postdocs who give talks. To be eligible for these funds students/postdocs must register and submit a talk abstract by 11:59 pm CDT September 8, 2019.  Preference will be given to regional theoretical particle physics students/postdocs.  However, provided funds are available, we will support the lodging of additional students/postdocs.  Further details are on the registration and lodging pages.

September 11, 2019  Deadline for hotel reservation under our group rate at the DoubleTree.  Information can be found on the lodging page.

September 28, 2019 Registration closes at midnight CDT.

Invited Guest Speaker:  Tim Tait (UC-Irvine) Tim has had to cancel.


Talks will be held in 2048 Malott Hall.  The main entrance of Malott Hall is on the Northern side with multiple doors.  This entrance is on the second floor.

Lunch on Saturday, coffee breaks, and a simple breakfast of bagels on Saturday and Sunday will be provided during the workshop.

Driving directions on Google maps from the hotel to campus can be found on the lodging page.

Walking directions on Google maps from the parking lots to the main Northern entrance of Malott Hall can be found on the parking and maps page.

This workshop is supported in part by the Research Excellence Initiative of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the University of Kansas, US-DOE, and the University of Kansas Department of Physics & Astronomy.
