XIIth Meeting on B Physics.Tensions in Flavour measurements: a path toward Physics beyond the Standard Model

from to (Europe/Rome)
at Centro Congressi Università di Napoli Federico II ( Aula Magna )
Via Partenope, 36 Napoli
We look forward to welcoming you to the workshop, which will be held in Napoli, Italy, on May 22-24, 2017. This is the 12th meeting in the series "Workshop on B Physics", jointly organized by Italian and French physicists.

The scope of the workshop has expanded over the years and flavour physics in general will be covered: topics will include B, charm and kaon physics and lepton flavour violation. The current state of the art of flavour physics will be reviewed, with an emphasis on the interplay between experimental results and theory. There will be sessions devoted to future developments, both in the medium term and long term, as seen from the experimental and theoretical viewpoints. The goal is to survey the landscape of flavour physics over the next decade and beyond.

Confirmed speakers include:

Ikaros Bigi, Univ. of Notre Dame du Lac
Ivan Belyaev, ITEP Moscow
Francesca Bucci INFN Firenze
Roberto Covarelli, Univ. of Torino
Gianfranca De Rosa, Univ. di Napoli Federico II
