18th International Conference From the Planck Scale to the Electroweak Scale

25-29 May 2015
Ioannina, Greece
Since the second half of the twentieth century we have witnessed important experimental discoveries as well as enormous advances on modern theories of High Energy Physics. These breakthroughs were the spark of a great number of important and influential workshops and conferences. The last two decades the Planck conferences have been established as one of the most successful annual events, covering most of the research areas in High Energy Physics.

The year 2015 we had the honour to host the 18th International Conference {PLANCK 2015} at The University of Ioannina, in the city of Ioannina, Greece. The event took place from Monday, May 25 2015 till Friday, May 29 2015. Previous Planck International Conferences were held in the following cities:

2014: Paris, 2013: Bonn, 2012: Warsaw, 2011: Lisbon, 2010: CERN, 2009: Padova, 2008: Barcelona, 2007: Warsaw, 2006: Paris, 2005: Trieste, 2004: Bad Honnef, 2003: Madrid, 2002: Kazimierz, 2001: La Londe-les-Maures, 2000: Castelvecchio Pascoli, 1999: Bad Honnef, 1998: Kazimierz

The Planck-2015 conference covered a wide range of topics in contemporary theoretical and experimental physics: The talks on Experimental High Energy Physics, focused on the prospects at LHC experiments, the neutrino experiments as well as supersymmetry and dark matter searches. The theoretical talks covered topics in String Theory and String Phenomenology, Supersymmetry and Supergravity, Cosmology, Neutrino Physics and Discrete Symmetries.

Several talks presented also work in astroparticle physics, dark matter and supersymmetry as well as research with wide applications in particle physics and beyond. Following the tradition of the Planck series of conferences, the talks (141 in total) were divided into 41 plenary-review talks, and 100 shorter presentations.

The organisation of the Planck meeting in the city of Ioannina was an important landmark in the scientific life of our University. Spearheaded by the quality of our speakers and the participants, we were fortunate to have very high quality plenary and research talks, as well as stimulating and interesting discussions which made the conference quite fruitful and enjoyable. There were more that 200 registered participants for the event.
