Flavours: light, heavy and dark

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 workshop will bring together leading researchers from experimental and theoretical 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. A significant fraction of the workshop will be devoted to discuss possible explanations (within and beyond the SM) of the recent anomalies in B physics. But we plan to extend the discussion also to other topics, including high-PT signatures of BSM models non-trivial flavour structure; phenomenology of possible Heavy Neutral Leptons; exotic Dark Matter models; Lepton Flavour Violation in charged leptons.

The workshop, organized jointly by the particle theory groups of UZH and ETH with the support of the Pauli Center for Theoretical Studies, will be held on January 15-17, 2018.

Registration is now open. Please register here.

The event starts on Monday 15th of January at 9:30 am (registration from 9:00 am) and ends on Wednesday 17th, at 15:00 in the afternoon.
