The flavour of new physics

About ZPW

This year

During the past years, the Zurich Phenomenology Workshop has developed into a forum for particle physics researchers to discuss the latest developments in phenomenology. Its recent editions focused on

The experimentally observed flavour structure of quarks and leptons hosts a broad spectrum of phenomena of mixings, patterns and symmetries. Flavour observables can provide indirect probes of the physics at energy scales well beyond the direct reach of high energy colliders. Several new directions in flavour physics have opened up recently, such as flavour observables in Higgs physics, specific ultra-rare processes measured at LHCb, and a new lepton flavour program starting at PSI.

The Zurich Phenomenology workshop will bring together leading researchers from experimental and theoretical elementary particle physics to discuss recent results on quark and lepton flavour observables and their impact on the search for new physics beyond the Standard Model.

The workshop is organized jointly by the particle theory groups of UZH and ETH and will be held on January 7-9, 2015.

The event starts on Wednesday the 7th of January at 9:30am (registration from 9:00am) and ends on Friday the 9th, at 16:00 in the afternoon.
