Program on New Directions in Particle Physics

September 5-23, 2022 

ICTP-SAIFR, São Paulo, Brazil

Auditorium of IFT-UNESP


The aim of the program is to bring together in a discussion-friendly environment renowned experts, as well as younger researchers, working on various aspects of physics beyond the Standard Model. More specifically, we foresee discussions on BSM model-building, Dark Matter, dark sectors, axions, the cosmological constant, possible experimental signals at collider, non-collider and astrophysical experiments. The event will have an open format centered around discussions, with a small number of talks. The program will last three weeks, with a minimum one-week stay, although longer stays are encouraged.

There is no registration fee.
