Meeting Description

Overview

The Gordon Research Seminar on Particle Physics is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The meeting will cover a wide range of topics. A key goal is to bring together young scientists working in theory and experiment at all frontiers of particle physics, ranging from the LHC and other future high energy colliders over precision and intensity frontier approaches to the increasingly important study of astroparticles and the early universe at the cosmic frontier. The meeting will provide an excellent opportunity for theorists and experimentalists to communicate with each other, inspire each other and form collaborations in the search for new physics and in the quest to answer long standing questions about the fundamental laws that govern our universe.

The meeting consists of four sessions. In addition, there will be an opportunity to present posters. There will be two dedicated poster sessions, and the posters will remain on display throughout the entire meeting. The four sessions are:

  • Opening session: Pushing the Frontiers of Particle Physics
    The meeting will start with a keynote talk by Hitoshi Murayama (UC Berkeley and IMPU Tokyo). Afterwards there will be an open discussion and beers in the evening.
  • The "energy frontier": LHC and future colliders
    This session will be devoted to the search for New Physics at the high energy frontier (LHC and future colliders). We aim to bring together bright young minds from experiment and theory (model building as well as phenomenology) to foster a fruitful discussion about the potential to discover New Physics at colliders, including Dark Matter, Supersymmetry and other New Physics ideas that can be tested in high energy collisions.
  • The "intensity frontier": high intensity experiments, rare processes and precision tests
    On the experimental side, session will be devoted to high intensity experiments (e.g. fixed target experiments and neutrino experiments), searches for rare processes at low energy (such as neutrinoless double beta decay, lepton flavour violation, axion searches, indirect DM detection) and low energy precision tests (such as searches for dipole moments). On the theory side, we will discuss models that can be tested in such experiments (hidden sector, neutrino mass models, axions, flavour models, DM...).
  • The "cosmic frontier" and the search for New Physics in outer space
    The final session will be devoted to the connection between particle physics and cosmology and astrophysics. This includes the early universe (baryogenesis, DM production, ...) and astroparticle physics (cosmic rays, indirect DM searches).

Funding Notice: We can support a limited number of ~30 GRS participants up to $260 each (based on single room occupancy), which is the full GRS registration fee. This would be available for all participants from outside Hong Kong who are accepted for an oral presentation. If you also present a poster at the GRC, you will be given priority for support of approximately $550 USD to partially cover the GRC registration fee. Please note that this also includes accommodations and all meals for the duration of both meetings.

Application Instructions

The meeting will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The Chairs will select speakers from abstracts submitted by April 30, 2017. Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Deadline section above.

Related Meeting

This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Particle Physics" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
