Physics beyond the standard model is today's challenge in particle theory and experiments. This conference will allow to explore different but intimately related aspects of new and emerging models. The first part (November 23-25) will be dedicated to flavour with a particular emphasis on physics beyond the standard model. The second part (November 25-27) will be dedicated to composite models for the electroweak scale, both the new technicolor models and the composite (Goldstone)-Higgs type. Both parts will include a workshop session aimed at discussing and exploring together, in a collaborative way, new and recent theoretical ideas for these models and for their dark matter candidates.
Part 1: Flavour (23-25 November). We will discuss new experimental results in flavour physics and their implications for BSM models. A part of the workshop will be dedicated to discussing new model building ideas. The first two days (23-24) will include talks summarizing the current experimental and theoretical situation in flavour physics, with some time also dedicated to open discussions, while more formal presentations will be given on the 25th.
Part 2: CoDyCE 5, Composite Dynamics and Dark Matter (25-27 November). The second part of the meeting will be dedicated to discussing new ideas in the understanding of strong dynamics in the Higgs sector and beyond, focusing on the use of a fundamental composite dynamics. Both results on the lattice and in phenomenology will be addressed. Discussion on Dark Matter and prospects for its detection will be a central point. Plenary presentations are scheduled on the 25th, while the last two days will be dedicated to open discussion sessions. This workshop is part of a series of meetings (CoDyCE) between the IPNL and the CP3-Origins.
How to reach Lyon: if you fly in the Lyon Exupery airport, you can easily reach Lyon by taking the express tram Rhonexpress to the central Lyon Part-Dieu train station.
How to reach the IPNL (conference venue): take the tram T1 direction IUT Feyssine or T4 direction La Doua Gaston Berger and get off at the stop Universite Lyon 1. From there you can walk to the IPN: follow the tram track and turn on the first road on the left. The IPNL is down the road (click on the link below to see a map).
The "Amphi Dirac" is on the ground floor, the "Salle du Conseil" on the first floor.
