The Standard Model of particle physics and General relativity offer a theoretical framework explaining properties of matter and interactions from subnuclear scales to galactic sizes. However, observational data such as well-controlled measurements of the distribution of large scale structures and cosmic microwave anisotropies indicate that these theories need to be completed at larger energies and larger scales to resolve a number of puzzles: acceleration of the expansion of the universe, nature of the dark matter component of the Universe, origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry, origin of the inflationary stage in the early Universe.
High energy theorists have been working on various extensions of the Standard Model like Supersymmetry, Grand Unified Theories, theories with extra dimensions. The next generation of particle physics experiments (LHC, neutrino superbeams, B factories...) and astroparticles/cosmology experiments (Auger, Planck, Snap, Lisa... ) will offer the possibility to test these theories and deepen our understanding of the fundamental laws. A very challenging era is awaiting us.
The aim of the school is two-fold:
The school is therefore open to both high energy physicists and researchers in astroparticle physics and cosmology. Priority is given to PhD students and young postdocs. Some more advanced scientists willing to improve their competences in this research area are also welcome.
