FIPs in the ALPs

14—19 May 2023 | Les Houches, France

Organizer: Gaia Lanfranchi
Registration deadline: 15/03/2023
Contact: Gaia Lanfranchi

FIPs in the ALPs is the first edition of a foreseen series of schools  fully dedicated to the physics of feebly-interacting particles and aims to gathering together highly renowned experts from collider, beam dump, fixed target experiments, as well as from astroparticle, cosmology, axion/ALP, ultra-light particle searches, and dark matter direct and indirect detection communities along with a set of young and brilliant physicists to discuss progress in experimental searches and underlying theory models for FIP physics.

The school is organized by the FIP Physics Centre of the Physics Beyond Colliders study group at CERN:

The aim of the school is to embedding a new generation of physicists into the activities of the study group.

The School is organized along three main directions:

  1. MeV-GeV Dark Matter and its searches at accelerator, direct and indirect detection experiments;
  2. Heavy neutral leptons and their connection to active neutrino physics;
  3. Ultra-light (< 1 eV) FIPs in particle physics, astroparticle, and cosmology.

Advanced PhD students and PostDocs are strongly encouraged to apply.

Tentative programme:

  • Marco Drewes, Mikhail Shaposhnikov: Heavy Neutral Leptons in particle physics and cosmology
  • Maxim Pospelov: FIPs in the early universe
  • Yevgeny Stadnik: Phenomenology of ultra-light FIPs
  • Joerg Jaeckel: ALPs in the FIPs
  • Stefania Gori: Phenomenology of MeV-GeV Dark Matter 
  • Gaia Lanfranchi: FIPs at extracted beam lines.
