There are several open questions in Physics today, each of which touches the fields of both Particle Physics and Astroparticle/Cosmology. For example, only 5% of the Universe is described by the Standard Model of particle physics. A far larger contribution comes from the elusive Dark Matter, which has been inferred from gravitational and astroparticle measurements. A large variety of models have been built by the theory community. Dark Matter is searched for in dedicated direct and indirect detection experiments but also in high-energy collisions at the LHC or in electron-positron collisions at Flavour Factories. Other subjects, such as the baryogenesis is still an open question related both to leptogenesis and CP violation and the matter content of today’s Universe. The knowledge of the neutrino sector has greatly increased over the past decades, but the question of the hierarchy is not yet solved and would need both accelerator/astroparticle and cosmological measurements to be fully understood. The physics of inflation, which will be better constrained in the coming years, would also need skills from both fields to be fully explored. Finally, anomalies in the quark and lepton sectors have been reported by many experiments and might be related to new physics emerging from precision measurements. Is a simple extension of the Standard Model sufficient or do we need more? In many fields the “single experiment” measurements have given way to more global views of our models: electroweak fits, exploring the parameter space of models beyond the Standard Model taking into account measurements and limits on new signatures.
The IPA2022 conference will bring together experimentalists and theorists to discuss the topics mentioned above with an emphasis on exchange between the different but correlated fields.
The timetable is indicative and not yet finalized.
The fees are 330 Euros (before June 26) and 375 Euros (starting June 26). Included are all coffee breaks, the welcome reception on Monday as well as the social program and the conference dinner on Wednesday. For accompanying persons the fee is 70 Euros and include the the welcome reception on Monday as well as the social program and the conference dinner on Wednesday.
