Workshop — Next Frontiers in the Search for Dark Matter
26 Aug 2019 - 11 Oct 2019 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
The Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
The origin of dark matter (DM) is among the most urgent questions in fundamental physics, as astronomical observations do not inform us directly about its particle nature. The proposed workshop will bring together theorists and experimentalists to explore new theoretical avenues and detection strategies. During the workshop we will focus on well-motivated and long-standing theories of DM, such as WIMPs and axions, and we will assess the status of fast-moving current searches. We will identify new DM theories, with particular emphasis on those giving distinct predictions from WIMPs. There will also be extensive discussions about new ideas for discovering DM through direct detection, indirect detection, collider production, and cosmological observations. Finally, we will explore dark-sector extensions of the standard model, which can yield distinctive cosmological and astrophysical signals, as well as exotic events at colliders.
Topics:
Week 1: New theories and the dark matter mass landscape, Week 2: Direct searches, Week 3: Indirect and astrophysical probes, Week 4: Searches at accelerators, Week 5: One week conference covering the themes of the workshop, Week 6: Axions and ALPs, Week 7: Primordial black holes dark matter and gravitational waves

Mini Workshop — Beyond the Standard Model: historical-critical perspectives
13 Oct 2019 - 27 Oct 2019 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
The Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
Ever since the Standard Model was established, there have been speculations about physics “beyond the Standard Model” (BSM), giving rise to a steady flow of models of “new physics” and letting the borders between high energy physics, astrophysics, and cosmology become increasingly permeable. So far, though, experiments failed to provide evidence for new physics, generating increasing talk of a “crisis” of these research programs, calling into question their premises, such as the principle of naturalness, or even questioning their scientific methodology. The workshop aims at approaching the present situation from a historical-critical perspective, contextualizing and questioning the developments of earlier decades, both to understand better their past and present scope, and to provide new material for reflections on contemporary physical research.
Topics:
1. Supersymmetry and supergravity: motivations and developments, 2. Formal analogies in/between particle physics, condensed matter physics, and cosmology, 3. Computer simulation in theoretical high energy physics and in cosmology, 4. The interplay of experimental results and BSM model-building

Topological Matter and Duality
07 Sep 2020 - 11 Sep 2020 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
The Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics
Abstract:
Topological properties of gauge theories find application in the characterization of novel phases of matter and in establishing nonperturbative phenomena such as the duality relations between quantum field theories in three and four spacetime dimensions. This conference is meant to expose the current status of research in several domains dealing with topology and duality
Topics:
Anomalies of quantum field theories * Generalized symmetries * Topological aspects of quantum states in condensed matter * (Supersymmetric) dualities in (2+1)-dimensions * Time-reversal symmetry and 4d theta-terms
