20-22 December 2016
Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati
Europe/Rome timezone
Aim of the workshop:
In spite of its consolidated experimental success, the standard model of particle physics falls short of describing all observed phenomena. For instance, the cosmological matter/antimatter asymmetry, dark matter, neutrino masses, all require some extension of the standard model. Well motivated theoretical considerations also support the expectation that physics beyond the standard model should sooner or later show up. Presently, it is far from clear which directions should be taken to extend the theory, and while the high energy frontiers keep being explored at the LHC, it is important to maintain under attentive scrutiny any discrepancy between theory predictions and experimental results.
In this 3-day workshop we plan to review the status of a few particle physics puzzles of different typologies: long-standing unresolved issues awaiting for further experimental clarification (muon g-2, neutrino physics anomalies), recent hints of anomalies in specific measurements where signals of new physics might preferentially show up (bottom and top physics), and discrepancies particularly robust, which cannot be ascribed to statistical fluctuations (internal e+e- production in 8Be nuclear transitions, proton charge radius). We plan to have only two or three talks each day, and plenty of time to jointly reanalyse the status of the various issues, confront and discuss strategies and ideas. The general approach and format of the talks (on invitation only) will be pedagogical, and should favor extended interaction among participants.
