Interplay of Flavour Physics with electroweak symmetry breaking and dark matter

The fifth 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 23-25 May 2014. As in the past editions, it is a joint workshop between experimentalists and theoreticians aiming at debating recent results and hot topics in flavour physics.

This year we focus on the interplay of flavour physics with electrowing symmetry breaking and dark matter, aiming at developing strategies to face the three experimental frontiers characterizing particle physics, the energy, intensity, and cosmic frontiers. Higher energy is the natural path to follow in the exploration of the gauge structure, with the study of the implications of the Higgs data for the SM and for models containing one or more Higgs-like scalar particles. Higher intensity is the path to follow for the exploration of the flavour structure with the study of rare or forbidden decays, both in the quark and in the lepton sector, of tiny deviations from the SM expectations, unification, undiscovered symmetries, the search for other sources of CP violation, the possibility of a weakly coupled hidden sector that is related to dark matter, and so on. The focus of the workshop is on brainstorming and discussions; the limited number of talks are intended as a support to constructive interactions among leading researchers.

Participation is by invitation only. It can be requested by writing to Giulia Ricciardi (chairperson) or to any other member of the organizing committee.

This year, the same location of the workshop, Villa Orlandi, will host a theoretical Institute, organized jointly by the University of Napoli Federico II and MITP (Mainz Institute for Theoretical Physics): Theory facing experiment on electroweak symmetry breaking, flavor and dark matter: where do we stand
The theoretical Program will be held on May 19-30 2014, and all participants will be welcome to the workshop.

The theoretical program and  the workshop have common goals, that is to interpret the results coming from a wide range of experiments, and to formulate a coherent framework to account for them. The status of high energy physics field in 2014 can emerge, and directions can be given for future progress.

The Workshop is funded by University of Napoli Federico II, Department of Physics and INFN, Sezione di Napoli.
