WHAT IS ʋ?: From new experimental neutrino results to a deeper understanding of theoretical physics and cosmology.



Abstract
This is the first workshop organized in the context of the European project ITN Invisibles (FP7-PEOPLE-2011-ITN), which focuses on Neutrino and Dark Matter phenomenology and their connection, www.invisibles.eu.
Neutrinos and Dark Matter are the most abundant particles in the universe and yet they remained unnoticed -invisible- until recently, due to their tenuous couplings to the ordinary matter we are composed of. Neutrino masses inferred from neutrino oscillations and the existence of dark matter constitute the first evidence ever of particle physics beyond the Standard Model. A wide experimental program focused on the properties of both type of particles is underway and key new results are becoming available. The road to build the New Standard Model of particle physics is open: a theory which must encompass the nature and properties of neutrinos and dark matter, besides those of ordinary matter. In this perspective, this workshop is specially timely, given the imminent results from LHC, neutrino and dark matter experiments. The latest experimental and theoretical developments will be discussed. Members of Invisibles ITN are specially encouraged to arrive on Saturday June 23rd, to be able to attend the Invisibles meeting on Sunday July 24th. From June 25th to June 29th, the ITN workshop will merge with the conference week of the GGI What is ʋ? workshop.

Alexei Smirnovs Fest: One day of the GGI conference, June 28th, will be dedicated to celebrate the prominent contributions of Alexei Smirnov to our research field, extending over 35 years. This is intended to be an occasion for friends and colleagues to honor Alexeis past work in the occasion of his 60th birthday, and to discuss present and future developments. Details of the scientific program will be communicated later. Please, when registering please specify your precise dates of attendance to the conference. For housing issues please contact Studio Guidi (tel: +39 055 241561; fax: +39 055 2346178) .
