KEK Theory Meeting (KEK-PH2017)

KEK Theory Meeting (KEK-PH2017)
on Particle Physics Phenomenology;
Feb. 14 (Tue) – Feb. 17 (Fri) 2017,
KEK building 3 1F, Seminar Hall

The annual Theory Meeting on Particle Physics Phenomenology
(KEK-PH2017) will be held at KEK, Feb. 14 (Tue) – Feb. 17 (Fri), 2017.

The deadline for the registration is Jan. 5 (Thu.), 2017.

This meeting covers many topics in particle physics phenomenology,
from the Standard Model and models beyond the Standard Model to
particle cosmology and astrophysics. We aim to discuss recent
developments in particle physics theories and learn about the latest
results and status of various ongoing and planned experiments.

Meeting program includes review talks by invited speakers
and short talks by participants. All the talks will be
given in English. We aim to provide an opportunity, not only for
experts but also for master/Ph.D course students, to learn recent
developments in particle physics phenomenology and to activate
intensive discussions.
In case of too many applications for short talks, we are planning to
have poster sessions.

Invited speakers and topics are planned as follows (still tentative):

Marco Ciuchini (INFN, Rome3)
Zoltan Fodor (Wuppertal U.)
Steen Hannestad (Aarhus, Denmark)
Anson Hook (Stanford U., ITP)
Seyda Ipek (Fermilab)
Ayuki Kamada (IBS)
John Kearney (Fermilab)
Mariangela Lisanti (Princeton U.)
Zhen Liu (Fermilab)
Michele Redi (INFN, Florence)
Raymond R. Volkas (ARC, CoEPP, Melbourne)
LianTao Wang (Chicago U.)
Ian Low (ANL, Northwestern U.)

* Belle/Belle II : Tomoyuki Konno (KEK)
* g-2 : TBA
* T2K : Son Cao (Kyoto U.)

Workshop fees:
Coffee and snacks : 300 yen
Banquet : 3,000 yen (tentative) (Banquet will be held on Feb.15 (Wed.))

KEK Theory Center visitor program

We welcome graduate students or researchers who have Ph.D. to stay at the KEK theory center. The main focus of the program is “Beyond the Standard Model Physics.” We support the travel and local expenses during the stay at KEK. The visitors are encouraged to collaborate with members at the KEK theory center. This program is supported by MEXT Grant-in-aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas “Neutrino physics and the origin of the Universe,” and the theory center project “BSM in high energy and high intensity frontier.”

You can find information of the KEK theory center at

from a week to two months until March, 2017

Please send an email to <> and let us know the preferable period of stay.
