Public Lecture — In Search for the Origin of Mass
11 May 2023 • University of Wolverhampton, United Kingdom
Institute of Physics (IOP)
One could say that the universe is both very simple and very complicated. It is very simple in the sense that we know of basic fundamental laws and principles that rule its behaviour, from particles to the cosmos as a whole, in an incredible amount of detail. Mass, for instance, one of the key concepts in physics, arises from the so-called Higgs mechanism of breaking the symmetry of a field that becomes nonzero due to its Mexican hat potential. Yet it is complicated because as consequences of such physical laws we are faced with mysteries such as most of the universe consisting of dark matter and dark energy, which are there in the theory to account for what we see, but that is not in plain sight when we look up in the sky. In this final talk of the Wolverhampton lecture series, Professor Nikolopoulos, one of the physicists who discovered the Higgs boson, will discuss the origin of mass in the universe and what we currently know about dark matter.

RADCOR 2023 — 16th International Symposium on Radiative Corrections: Applications of Quantum Field Theory to Phenomenology
28 May 2023 - 02 Jun 2023 • Crieff, Scottland, United Kingdom
This conference is the 16th in the series of biennial RADCOR conferences on radiative corrections. It is devoted to the applications of quantum field theory to particle physics phenomenology. Subjects will include precision calculations for colliders; progress in higher-loop and higher-multiplicity calculations in the Standard Model; cross sections for new physics; interpretations of experimental data; new techniques for calculations; advances in computer-algebra methods; new theoretical developments.

SUSY 2023 — 30th International Conference on Supersymmetry and Unification of Fundamental Interactions
17 Jul 2023 - 21 Jul 2023 • University of Southampton, Southampton, Hampshire, United Kingdom
The Conferences on Supersymmetry and Unification of Fundamental Interactions (SUSY) are amongst the world's largest international gatherings of particle physicists focused on new ideas related to fundamental interactions of elementary particles. The aim of the SUSY conference is to review and discuss recent research in theoretical, phenomenological, astrophysical and experimental aspects of supersymmetric theories and all other approaches to physics beyond the Standard Model. The 30th International Conference on Supersymmetry and Unification of Fundamental Interactions (SUSY-2023) is organised by the University of Southampton, United Kingdom. There will be a pre-SUSY-2023 school, taking place in the previous week.

Black holes: bridges between number theory and holographic quantum information
04 Sep 2023 - 20 Dec 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Defining a theory of quantum gravity remains one of the most challenging problems at the cutting edge of research in mathematical and theoretical physics. Unlocking this problem implies constructing a quantum field theoretic description of gravity which fully elucidates how a quantum field theory encodes gravitational spacetime background solutions. Much of the progress in shaping the language and the framework of this problem owes its genesis to a specific subset of problems in quantum gravity, namely those dealing with understanding the organisation of information in black holes.

41st International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory
28 Jul 2024 - 03 Aug 2024 • U. Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom
The International Symposium on Lattice Field Theory is an annual conference that attracts scientists from around the world. Originally started as a place for physicists to discuss recent developments in lattice gauge theory, the conference is now the largest of its type and has grown to cover strongly interacting phenomena in many contexts such as particle physics phenomenology and nuclear theory, as well as algorithms, code development and machine architectures.
