III Joint ICTP-SAIFR/ICTP-Trieste School on Particle Physics



June 24 – July 5, 2024

São Paulo, Brazil



The Standard Model of Particle Physics (SM) has been tested at unprecedented levels at the LHC and other facilities. Although extremely successful, the SM is known to be incomplete, since it does not address issues such as the origin of neutrino masses and the nature of dark matter and dark energy.
The six courses at the third edition of the Joint ICTP-SAIFR/ICTP-Trieste School on Particle Physics will cover some of these topics. In the first week the courses will provide a review of the SM, its shortcomings and how to explore Physics beyond it, a discussion of the future of particle accelerators and the connection of particle physics with cosmology. The second week will address the issue of dark matter and the more formal developments in approaching Physics beyond the Standard Model, as well as the use of amplitude methods in particle physics.

There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

This activity will be followed by the Second School on Dark Matter and Neutrino Detection from July 8 to 19.

Additional Information

Attention! Some participants in ICTP-SAIFR activities have received email from fake travel agencies asking for credit card information. All communication with participants will be made by ICTP-SAIFR staff using an e-mail “@ictp-saifr.org”. We will not send any mailings about accommodation that require a credit card number or any sort of deposit.

BOARDING PASS: All participants, whose travel has been provided or will be reimbursed by ICTP-SAIFR, should bring the boarding pass  upon registration. The return boarding pass (PDF, if online check-in, scan or picture, if physical) should be sent to secretary@ictp-saifr.org by e-mail.

COVID-19: Brazilians and foreigners no longer have to present proof of vaccination before entering the country.

Visa information: Nationals from several countries in Latin America and Europe are exempt from tourist visa. Nationals from Australia, Canada and USA are exempt from tourist visa until April 10, 2025. Please check here which nationals need a tourist visa to enter Brazil.

Accommodation: Participants, whose accommodation will be provided by the institute, will stay at The Universe Flat. Hotel recommendations are available here.

How to reach the Institute: The school will be held at ICTP South American Institute, located at IFT-UNESP, which is across the street from a major bus and subway terminal (Terminal Barra Funda). The address which is closer to the entrance of the IFT-UNESP building is R. Jornalista Aloysio Biondi, 120 – Barra Funda, São Paulo. The easiest way to reach us is by subway or bus, please find instructions here.

Poster presentation: Participants who are presenting a poster MUST BRING A PRINTED BANNER . The banner size should be at most 1 m (width) x 1,5 m (length). We do not accept A4 or A3 paper.
