24. November 2022 until 25. November 2022 all day



The 16th Central European Seminar on Particle Physics and Quantum Field Theory (VCES) will take place on Nov 24 - 25, 2022 at the TUtheSky Meeting Hall, Getreidemark 9, 1060 Vienna. The seminar focuses on the topic

Fundamental Puzzle Pieces to the Incomplete Picture of the Universe

The meeting is jointly organized by the Stefan Meyer Institute, opens an external URL in a new window of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Atominstitut of TU Wien, opens in new window, and is supported by the FWF doctoral school Particles and Interactions, opens an external URL in a new window (P28535-N27).

This year's seminar focuses on open problems and windows to new physics. Our understanding of the universe rests on two pillars: Einstein's theory of relativity, and the standard model of particle physics. During the past decades, numerous observations have been made that challenge this picture and call for the development of a more advanced understanding. In this seminar, we attempt to cover a broad range of such observations and tests seeking further deviations from known physics - from elusive dark energy and dark matter to neutrino oscillations and CKM non-unitarity.
