The Invisibles Workshop 2024 will take place in Bologna, Italy from July 1st to July 5th, 2024. It follows the Invisibles24 School. The event will be located in the city center of Bologna, inside the monumental complex of San Giovanni in Monte, in the room dedicated to Giorgio Prodi (ground floor).

The Invisibles24 Workshop aims at a broad audience working in the areas of neutrino, dark matter, astroparticle physics, cosmology. It is jointly organized by the Horizon 2020 Marie Curie ITN network HIDDeN and HE Staff Exchange ASYMMETRY, and it continues the series of “Invisibles” events started in 2012 (Horizon 2020 Marie Curie ITN network Invisibles, Horizon 2020 Marie Curie ITN network Elusives and the Horizon 2020 RISE network InvisiblesPlus).

Deadlines for fee payment: May 13th, 2024 (early) and 15th June, 2024 (late).

Registration deadline: June 1st, 2024. Places are limited.

Cancellation policy: 50% refund of the fee for cancellations before June 15th, 2024. To cancel please contact the organisers by email.

Call for abstracts: Junior participants to the Invisibles Workshop 2024 have the opportunity to apply for a poster and a short plenary talk presentation. Posters will be displayed for the full duration of the workshop, and dedicated poster sessions will be organised. The deadline for abstract submission is April 28th, 2024.

Childcare Service: The Invisibles24 Workshop provides a childcare service for a limited number of accompanying children between 3 and 7 years old. Request for this service can be asked during the registration. Please, contact the organisers if the accompanying child(ren) is (are) younger than 3 or older than 7, but you still require a childcare option, or for any other need related to your accompanying child(ren).

Invisibles24 logo realisation: V. Conti and A. Granelli. The letter V of the word INVISIBLES, also meant to recall the greek letter {\displaystyle \nu } used to indicate neutrinos,  is represented by a stylisation of the Garisenda and Asinelli towers, symbols of the city of Bologna. The grey semicircles on the back intersect in the middle to form a pointed arch, which is meant to recall the Porticoes of Bologna, recognised by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site (https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1650/). 

HIDDeN is a European ITN project (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019//860881-HIDDeN) focused on revealing the (a)symmetries we have yet to discover, hence hidden (a)symmetries, and the particles on which they act, in particular the invisible sector, made of neutrinos, dark matter and other elusive particles. It has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860881-HIDDeN”. 

ASYMMETRY is a European Staff exchange program (HE-MSCA-SE-2022//101086085) investigating the essential asymmetries of Nature and CP violation in particle physics and cosmology. It has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Staff Exchanges (SE) grant agreement No 101086085-ASYMMETRY”.
