Conferences and Workshops 2022


CRC TRR 257: Young Scientists Meeting

June 8-10 2022

The Young Scientists Meeting is a three-day meeting for all members of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) TRR 257. The scientific talks will be presented by young scientists (PhD students or Postdocs) and they will focus on the various projects of our CRC. This will give all participants the opportunity to gain a better overview of these projects and allow the speakers to present their research in front of a large audience. Besides scientific talks, this workshop also includes talks about soft skills and gender equality.

Due to the pandemic situation of the last years, this meeting is also a chance to reconnect to colleagues and promote mobility among the various institutes and departments of the CRC. Therefore every member of the CRC TRR 257 is invited to participate. The workshop will be held in person at the Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT).

LHCP 2022

May 16-20 2022

The LHCP conference series started in 2013 after a successful fusion of two international conferences, "Physics at Large Hadron Collider Conference" and "Hadron Collider Physics Symposium". The programme ((fully online this year)) will contain a detailed review of the latest experimental and theoretical results on collider physics, with many final results of the Large Hadron Collider Run-2, potentially a first glimpse of the upgraded accelerator and detector operation in Run-3, and discussions on further research directions within the high energy particle physics community, both in theory and experiment.

The main goal of the conference is to provide intense and lively discussions between experimenters and theorists in such research areas as the Standard Model Physics and Beyond, the Higgs Boson, Heavy Quark Physics and Heavy Ion Physics as well as to share recent progress in the high luminosity upgrades and future collider developments.

LoopFest XX

May 12-14 2022

LoopFest, this year at the University of Pittsburgh, provides a forum for discussing the latest results in precision quantum field theory and their applications to understanding experimental data at current and future colliders. Topics include:

  • The potential of the LHC and future colliders for precision measurements
  • Progress in multi-loop and multi-leg calculations
  • Interfacing fixed-order higher-order calculations with multi-purpose event generators
  • Application of effective field theory techniques to precision calculations
  • Prospects for improving PDFs for precision measurements

Standard Model at the LHC 2022 (SM@LHC 2022)

April 11 to 14 2022

The SM@LHC workshop (this year at CERN in a hybrid format) deals with the latest developments as well as future prospects in Standard Model phenomenology at the LHC. The emphasis lies in bringing together experimentalists and theorists to stimulate discussions on the most interesting and topical aspects across the various fields. The main topics include Electroweak, Higgs, QCD, Top, Flavour Physics and EFT.
