CERN launches Physics Beyond Colliders study group

CERN invites abstract applications for the workshop, which will investigate how CERN's accelerators can help solve questions of particle physics

We are pleased to announce the kick-off workshop of the "Physics Beyond Colliders" Study Group which has recently been set up by CERN Management. The workshop will be held at CERN, Geneva, on September 6-7, 2016.

The aim of the workshop is to explore the opportunities offered by the CERN accelerator complex and infrastructure to get new insights into some of today's outstanding questions in particle physics through projects complementary to high-energy colliders and other initiatives in the world. The focus is on fundamental physics questions that are similar in spirit to those addressed by high-energy colliders, but that may require different types of experiments. The kick-off workshop is intended to stimulate new ideas for such projects, for which we encourage the submission of abstracts.

Details on the workshop programme, registration and abstract submission, as well as the mandate of the Study Group, can be found on the workshop web site:
