Simplicity III

Conference Date: 
Monday, September 9, 2019 (All day) to Thursday, September 12, 2019 (All day)
Pirsa Collection: 
Scientific Areas: 
Cosmology
Particle Physics
Quantum Gravity

 

This cross-disciplinary workshop gathers theorists who have been working on novel approaches to understanding the structure of the Standard Model and its link to cosmology and gravity. It follows the previous Simplicity I and II workshops at Princeton University (2014) and Fermilab (2016) and will be a small, informal meeting with plenty of room for discussions.
