Ninth Workshop on Theory, Phenomenology and Experiments in Flavour Physics
Theory Facing Experiment on the Dark Matter and Flavour Puzzles
The ninth edition of the international workshop on Theory, Phenomenology and Experiments in Flavour Physics will be held at Villa Orlandi, Anacapri, Island of Capri (NA), Italy, on 19-21 June 2024. Traditionally, this workshop series has been an occasion for experimentalists and theoreticians to debate recent results and hot topics in flavour physics. Over the years, the topics for discussion have extended, encompassing other interesting and up-to-date scientific themes, in an interdisciplinary effort.
As of today, many of the open questions in the micro-world and the cosmos appear to be closely intertwined. Flavour physics is foremost in our assessment of results within the Standard Model and search for physics beyond. Dark Matter is searched for in dedicated direct and indirect detection experiments but also in high-energy collisions at the LHC or in electron-positron collisions at Flavour Factories. These different sectors can enrich one another by sharing insights and experimental techniques, as the boundaries that used to separate them become increasingly blurred. Comparison of constraints from different measurements may be fundamental to assess the consistency of whatever given theory. We also aim at identifying possible directions for the development of experimental activities which will guarantee the coverage of the most likely scenarios.
The Workshop is organized and funded by University of Napoli Federico II, Department of Physics and INFN, Sezione di Napoli.
