This years’ workshop is intended to bring together and facilitate discussions between members of the Theoretical physics of nuclei, particles and fields group and a couple of invited guests working on various phenomenological aspects of the Standard Model and New Physics. Topics include high energy unification of quark and lepton matter, the origin of fermionic flavors, dark matter and astroparticle physics, and approaches to strongly coupled quark systems in QCD.

The participation is by invitation only. There is no workshop fee.


Venue and accommodation

The workshop will take place at the Belica agroturism in Goriška Brda, a Slovenian wine-growing region extending over the state border with Italy.

Please check the map to see the location.
