The Physics of Modularity
01 Dec 2020 - 04 Dec 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Modularity is at the heart of many deep results in mathematics--from the proof of Fermat’s last theorem to moonshine to the Langlands correspondence. At the same time, modular group representations and automorphic forms underlie many interesting physical phenomena in quantum field theory and string theory, including understanding of dualities, boundary conditions, and supersymmetric black holes, among other things. This conference will bring together physicists and mathematicians to discuss emerging connections between a web of fundamental objects in physics and mathematics, united in the crucial role played by modularity.
new moonshines and mock modular forms; vertex operator algebras arising in supersymmetric gauge theories; topological invariants of 3- and 4-manifolds; topological QFTs and topological phases in condensed matter physics; topological string theory, Donaldson-Thomas theory, and enumerative geometry; scattering amplitudes in string theory; 2d conformal field theories, the modular bootstrap, and connections to 3d quantum gravity
Searches and Machine Learning Meet the Precision Frontier
12 Apr 2021 - 15 Apr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world’s facility for probing fundamental physics at the electroweak scale and well beyond. As it enters a new phase of extended data accumulation, two broad challenges emerge: how to fulfill the potential for percent-level precision with the large dataset, and how to maximise the information that can be extracted from each event about the underlying scattering process, in particular with machine learning. Solving these problems will have an impact across a wide range of physics topics: establishing the properties of the newly discovered interactions of the Higgs sector and understanding electroweak symmetry breaking, enhancing the sensitivity of searches for physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM), and precision measurements of a range of fundamental parameters in the Standard Model.

2021 Snowmass Summer Study
11 Jul 2021 - 20 Jul 2021 • Seattle, WA, United States
Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) of the American Physical Society.
The Particle Physics Community Planning Exercise (a.k.a. “Snowmass”) is organized by the Division of Particles and Fields (DPF) of the American Physical Society. Snowmass is a scientific study. It provides an opportunity for the entire particle physics community to come together to identify and document a scientific vision for the future of particle physics in the U.S. and its international partners. The P5 (Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel) will take the scientific input from Snowmass and develop a strategic plan for U.S. particle physics that can be executed over a 10 year timescale, in the context of a 20-year global vision for the field.
Long Program — Mathematical and Computational Challenges in the Era of Gravitational Wave Astronomy
13 Sep 2021 - 17 Dec 2021 • Los Angeles, CA, United States
Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), UCLA
The aim of this program is to connect efforts of the mathematical and physical sciences communities to address the latest advances and new challenges on the understanding of multi-messenger astronomy. The IPAM program will comprise four workshops, each addressing a different topic: the generation of catalogs of waveform templates; the discussion of the mathematical modeling of the equations governing strong relativistic systems; parameter estimation of astrophysical sources of gravitational waves; and the state of the art of big data and deep learning techniques for GW data analysis.
TAU2021 — 16th International Workshop on Tau Lepton Physics
26 Sep 2021 - 01 Oct 2021 • Bloomington, Indiana, United States
TAU2021 is the 16th International Workshop on Tau Lepton Physics in the series devoted to the physics of the tau lepton and its associated neutrino. The goal of the workshop is to bring theorists and experimentalists together to discuss recent progress in the field. Latest results from e+e- colliders (Belle II, BESIII experiments), the proton-proton colliders (ATLAS, CMS and LHCb experiments), g-2 and the neutrino experiments (DUNE, MINOS, etc.) will be presented. Properties of the tau lepton, as well as methods of using tau leptons as a probe for new physics, will be discussed, along with a review of future experimental projects.
