BPS Dynamics and Quantum Mathematics
20 May 2024 - 21 Jun 2024 • Florence, Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Quantum field theory is not only the unifying language of fundamental forces, but also an extremely rich source of surprising non-perturbative dualities. This success in predicting unexpected new links among seemingly distant subjects has accelerated on many fronts over the past few years, thanks to applications of modern developments in “quantum” mathematics to quantum field theories with supersymmetric, integrable, conformal, topological, or holomorphic structures. The insights emerging from these developments have been the source of important novel results across various branches of theoretical physics and mathematics, hinting at further new connections awaiting discovery. The common ground to all these recent developments is the richness of the physics and mathematics underlying the dynamics of protected (BPS) sectors, whose study ties together fundamental questions in diverse fields in original ways. This workshop aims to highlight and discuss the impact of key developments, to forge new synergies, and to grasp together the hints of far-reaching new opportunities.

Workshop — Neutrino Frontiers
25 Jun 2024 - 19 Jul 2024 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
The neutrino oscillation discovery was a breakthrough with an impact in particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. While most of the mixing parameters are precisely measured, key open questions remain including the neutrino absolute mass and mass ordering, the neutrino nature, the existence of CP violation in the lepton sector, of non-standard interactions and of sterile neutrinos. While the majority of the available oscillation results are understandable by considering three active neutrinos only, some anomalies are actively debated. In parallel with the progress in our knowledge of neutrino properties important advances were made in cosmology and astrophysics. Among the open problems is neutrino flavor evolution in dense astrophysical media. In particular, recent theoretical studies of dense weakly interacting many-body neutrino systems in astrophysical environments uncovered novel connections to other domains including quantum computing. Moreover, the observation of ultra-high energy neutrinos opened a new window in neutrino astronomy; while the discovery of the diffuse supernova neutrino background is expected in the foreseeable future. The goal of the workshop is to create a collaborative and brainstorming atmosphere around key open issues at the neutrino frontiers. Neutrino 2024 will take place just before the GGI program that will happen at a very timely period when running experiments might deliver first results. Crossing results from Earth experiments, astrophysics and cosmology will be a major tool to push forward progress on crucial open issues at the frontiers.

Workshop — Theory Challenges in the Precision Era of the Large Hadron Collider
28 Aug 2024 - 13 Oct 2024 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
The workshop aims at bringing together world experts in precision Standard Model phenomenology in response to the anticipated accuracy of new high-quality data from Run 3 of the LHC. With an increasing number of experimental analyses limited by theoretical uncertainties the theory community is challenged to provide predictions with a matching precision and to continue the development of frontier tools. Starting from an overview of available theoretical predictions and gathering feedback from the experimental community, areas in need for improvements will identified. The ultimate goal is to lay the foundations for precision measurements of Standard Model observables during future runs of the LHC. A kick-off conference will be held in the first week (August 28 to September 01, 2023) as a basis for the activities during the rest of the workshop.

NOW 2024 — Neutrino Oscillation Workshop 2024
02 Sep 2024 - 08 Sep 2024 • Otranto (Lecce), Italy
Abstract:
The aim of the workshop is: to discuss Neutrino Oscillation Physics, in particular current experimental data and their theoretical interpretation; to outline future investigations of neutrino masses and mixings; and to explore the links with various research fields in Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology. The structure of the NOW 2024 Workshop will include four plenary and parallel sessions: I – Standard three-neutrino oscillations; II – Beyond the standard framework; III – Neutrino masses, states and interactions; IV – Particle physics from the sky and the cosmos; plus an extra (only plenary) session: Crossing the portal. Because of constraints in accommodation and to fulfill the workshop requirements, participation is by invitation, and is limited to about 115 participants.

Foundations and Applications of Relativistic Hydrodynamics
14 Apr 2025 - 16 May 2025 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Relativistic fluid dynamics is a powerful universal effective theory that plays a crucial role in understanding physical systems under extreme conditions of temperature and density. These include the Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) created in heavy-ion collisions, matter in the early universe, colliding neutron stars, and black holes in the holographic gauge-string duality. Despite its interdisciplinary applicability and long history, the scope and foundations of relativistic hydrodynamics remain active research areas today. This workshop is dedicated to gather physicists with different expertise, those committed in applying relativistic hydrodynamics to heavy-ion phenomenology and astrophysics, alongside with researchers focusing on the foundational aspects of relativistic hydrodynamics. The aim is to foster a collaborative environment that encourages a synergic and efficient exchange of ideas from complementary realms to accelerate progress on timely problems in relativistic hydrodynamics. The experimental results and phenomenology can guide theoretical advances of relativistic hydrodynamics towards real-world applications.
Topics:
Quantum effects and effective field theories for hydrodynamics • Heavy ion collisions and hydrodynamics at high energy and near the QCD critical point • Spin and hydrodynamics • Stability and causality in hydrodynamics • General relativity and hydrodynamics • Bootstrap techniques and gauge/gravity duality for hydrodynamics

From Asymtptotic Symmetries to Flat Holography: Theoretical Aspects and Observable Consequences
19 May 2025 - 20 Jun 2025 • Firenze , Italy
Organizer:
Galileo Galilei Institute
Abstract:
Gravity and gauge theories share a rich infrared physics whose universal features manifest themselves in the context of asymptotic symmetries and their Noether charges. They clarify the soft factorization properties of scattering amplitudes, they play a role in the phenomenology of gravitational waves, and enter in the identification of new observable effects including gravitational and color memories. From the perspective of quantum gravity, they introduce new tools to understand the structure of the Hilbert space, and bring about a novel and promising approach to investigate a holographic principle for asymptotically flat spacetimes, currently pursued along two related lines: celestial and Carrollian holography. The latter exploits the Carroll structure at null infinity while the former takes advantage of powerful toolkit of conformal field theory. The vast majority of these developments have taken place in the last ten years and gave rise to research lines currently undergoing a fast growth. The proposed workshop aims at exploiting this rich and timely topic to bring together experts from all over the world, together with young researchers and students, with the goal to provide training, share results, build common grounds and foster new collaborations.
Topics:
Asymptotic symmetries; Celestial holography; Carroll physics and geometry; Twistor methods; Gravitational observables; Memory effects; Conformal colliders
