XVII Bled Workshop "What comes beyond the Standard model?"

New postby Maxim Khlopov on Thu 12 Jun 2014 20:27

The first announcement of the seventeenth workshop "What Comes Beyond the
Standard Models?"

Organizing Committee: Norma Susana Mankoc Borstnik, Holger Bech Nielsen
and Maxim Yu. Khlopov

Scientific Committee: John Ellis (CERN), David Gross (KITP), Roman
Jackiw (MIT)

Dear colleague,

This letter is the first announcement of the seventeenth workshop (17th)
entitled

"What Comes Beyond the Standard Models?" which will take place at Bled,
Slovenia,
from 20 th of July 2014 (arrival day, afternoon) to 28th of July 2014
(departure day,
morning). Three days before (17-20 of July) and three days after (28-30
of July) the
workshop takes place in Ljubljana. This call will also be soon available
at the
following URL:

http://bsm.fmf.uni-lj.si/bled2014bsm/

This page contains links to maps of Bled etc. and will be
updated with later calls (there will be probably two more calls: in May
and in late June/early July before the workshop in July).

The following links may also be of interest:
- home page of the 2013 workshop at
http://bsm.fmf.uni-lj.si/bled2013bsm
containing workshop announcements and presentations of most talks
(workshop pages for 2012 and 2011 can be found at the analogous URLs -
just substitute year for 2013 in the above address)
- home page of Cosmovia, http://www.cosmovia.org/ , which hosts
video conferences at our (and many other) conferences for the last
several years, courtesy of Prof. Maxim Yu. Khlopov
(on the cosmovia home page click 'enter', then go to the link for older
conferences) - Proceedings of last year's workshop is available at
http://bsm.fmf.uni-lj.si/bled2013bsm/Bl ... o2proc.pdf
and also as (index submission) arXiv:1302.4305. One can find all the
proceedings at
arxiv.

Web conferences using VIA system are planned during the Workshop at
Bled, as was
the case for the previous five years (you can see the videos, as well as
the Proceedings, at www.cosmovia.org -- click 'enter the site' on the
main page, click the
link ' previous', select 'conferences' and then select one of the Bled
workshops). We
expect several contributions at distance with the use of VIA system.


Our workshop is organized for the purpose of answering the open questions
in the standard model of the electroweak and colour interactions,
and the cosmological standard model, like:

o What is the most promising first step beyond the standard model, which
would explain and possibly justify the assumptions of the standard model:
* the origin of families of massless fermions with the same members of
each family,
* the origin of spin and charges of fermions,
* the origin of massless gauge vector boson fields,
* the origin of the higgs and Yukawa couplings,
* the origin of differences in masses of family members?

o There are several proposals in the literature, which are trying to
explain the assumptions of the standard model.
* How much have different proposals in common?
* To how many of the open questions of the standard model does a
particular
proposal offer?

o How many families shall we be able to observe at the LHC?

o How many scalar fields shall the LHC observe?

o What is the origin of the dark matter? What properties has it?

o What is the origin of the two energy scales:
* The colour phase transition and
* the electroweak phase transition scale?

o Why has Nature made a choice of four (noticeable) dimensions while all
the others (if existing) are hidden?
* How has the compactification occur?
* What are the properties of space-time in the hidden dimensions?

o Where do possible Majorana properties of fermions originate?

o How can one understand the discrete symmetries in Kaluza-Klein like
theories?

o What can we learn from the model in which all fermions have come by
fermionization from original bosons?

o How can all gauge fields (including gravity) be unified and quantized?

o What is the origin of the field which caused inflation?

o What new can bring the imaginary part of a Lagrangean?

o What do string theories really mead?

The aim of the workshop is to bring together physicists, who are
trying to find the answers to some of these and other open questions
from the field of the elementary particles and cosmology and who would
enjoy to actively discuss these questions in a small group.

In the last sixteen years we have organized workshops entitled
``What Comes Beyond the Standard Models?" They took place annually in July
since 1998. Each year we spent ten days, trying to answer these
questions in a very pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. We have
published fourteen volumes of Proceedings to these workshops (one in
1999, and then one volume every year since 2001). In the year 2003 we
have also organized, in addition and with the help of EURESCO, the
conference titled "Euroconference on symmetries beyond the
Standard models" from 12. -- 17. of July 2003 in Portoroz,
Slovenia. Proceedings volume published in 2003 contains write-ups of
the talks at this conference.


Bled is a nice town by the lake of the same name, surrounded by mountains,
with many comfortable hotels. Home page of Bled, containing information for
visitors, is available at http://www.bled.si in several languages.


The Physical Society together with the Mathematical Society owns a
house, whose owner was our well known mathematician Josip
Plemelj. This house can accept 16 people in 8 rooms. The street location
of the house is Presernova cesta 39, Bled. It also has a lecture room
for around 20 people.
There is some place in the Plemelj's house. However, if you want the hotel
reservation, then you can do that by yourself (Bled homepage
www.Bled.si contains links to hotels, we might have some arrangement
with hotel Astoria). If you want us to do that then, please, let us know
very soon.

*************************************** COST
We are trying to keep the costs low. The Conference Fee will be
510 EUR for the whole duration of the Workshop (or 60 EUR per day) and
it will cover breakfast, coffee, lunch-snacks and dinner for 8 days,
and 30 EUR for the Proceedings,
(already included in 510 EUR).

In addition, the price of weakly accommodation in Villa Plemelj
is 200 EUR (sharing a double bedroom)
or 400 EUR (for single occupancy)
and it is paid separately from the Conference Fee.

These costs concern only the part at Bled, Ljubljana has to be paid
separately.
****************************************************************

By the way, we are still negotiating for somewhat lower prices.

Please let us know, ifyou need a letter of invitation from the
organizing committee
either for your institute/university or for a visa application.

We recommend that you bring appropriate shoes and parkas for trekking
and mountaineering .


The workshop is organized by the DMFA (Society of Mathematicians, Physicists
and Astronomers of Slovenia). We have asked the Slovenian Ministry of
Higher Education, Science and technology to sponsor this workshop.
The workshop is sponsored by the Slovenian National Committee for
Physics, DMFA, Department of Physics, FMF, University of Ljubljana.


ONE PAGE CONTRIBUTION

You may send a one page contribution to the workshop.

SUGGESTIONS FOR DISCUSSIONS

We also ask you to write in a few sentences the suggestions for the
open problems, which you are prepared to lead the discussions for, or
you suggest the discussions about.

PRESENTATIONS

It is planned that in the first two or three days everybody will
present her or his work in a one hour talk (although the talks usually,
because of many questions and interruptions, last much longer).
In the rest of the workshop we shall discuss the open problems.

LETTER OF INVITATION

We shall be glad to send you the letter of invitation after your
response to this announcement.
