International Symposium on Neutrino Physics and Beyond (NPB 2024)

HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study, Lo Ka Chung Building, Lee Shau Kee Campus

Despite the groundbreaking discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the Standard Model of particle physics leaves many fundamental questions unanswered. These include the naturalness problem, the origin of neutrino masses, the nature of dark matter, and the source of matter-antimatter asymmetry in the Universe.

A new wave of experiments is on the horizon to address these unknowns and explore uncharted territory. These range from long term projects such as the electron-positron Higgs factory and 100 TeV proton or muon colliders, to next-generation experiments focusing on neutrino oscillations, neutrinoless double-beta decays, high-energy gamma/cosmic rays, lepton-flavor violation and the search for dark matter. The quest for new physics is in full swing, and the hope is that these experiments will deliver results that transform our understanding of the universe at its most fundamental level.

Organized by the Institute of High Energy Physics-Chinese Academy of Sciences (IHEP-CAS, Beijing) and the HKUST Jockey Club Institute for Advanced Study-The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST IAS, Hong Kong), this symposium aims to foster collaboration and spark intensive discussions about the future of particle physics among theorists and experimentalists. The event will be held from February 19-21, 2024, on the HKUST campus in Hong Kong, China. An exclusive visit to the Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO)—slated for completion early next year—will be arranged on February 21, 2024. 

This event is by invitation only.

Registration fee:

- 250 EUR / person (2000 CNY) for in-person participants.
