A limited number of rooms is available at the IWH for students. Please contact Jamie Tattersall for the reservation.

Your contribution to the programme is welcome. Please contact the coordinators of the corresponding session if you would like to give a talk:

  • Higgs: Christoph Anders, Sandrine Laplace, Christophe Ochando, Pietro Slavich
  • BSM: Michel de Cian, Marie-Helene Genest, Stephane Lavignac, Ana Teixeira, Patrice Verdier
  • Dark Universe: Jamie Tattersall, Emmanuel Moulin, Marco Cirelli
  • Tools: Veit Scharf, Benjamin Fuks and Nikola Makovec
