XX Bled Workshop ''What comes beyond the Standard model?'' takes place at Bled, Slovenia, from 9th of July 2017 to 17th of July 2017

Organizing Committee:

Norma Susana Mankoc Borstnik, Holger Bech Nielsen, Maxim Yu. Khlopov

Scientific Committee:

John Ellis (CERN),

Roman Jackiw (MIT),

Masao Ninomiya (Okayama Institute for Quantum Physics)

The 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, explaining the assumptions of the standard model like:

* the origin of massless family members with their related spin and charges,

* the origin of families,

* the origin of massless vector gauge fields,

* the origin of the Higgs's scalar and Yukawa couplings,

* the origin of differences in masses of family members?

o And going beyond, while explaining:

* the origin of dark matter,

* the origin of dark energy,

* the origin of ordinary matter-antimatter asymmetry.

o How to interpret the so far made searches for new physics on the LHC and other new experiments and how to predict new observations?

* How many families shall we be able to observe at the LHC and at which energies?

* How many scalar fields shall the LHC observe?

* What are masses of new families?

* What are properties of new scalar fields?

o What properties has the dark matter?

* Is the charge asymmetry in the dark matter?

o What is the origin of the two energy scales:

* the colour phase transition scale and

* the electroweak phase transition scale?

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?

o What can strings and membranes contribute to our understanding of elementary particle physics and cosmology?

* What do string theories really mean?

o What does the complex action bring into the understanding of the properties of our universe?

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

o Why has Nature made a choice of four (noticeable) dimensions while all the others (if existing) are hidden?

* How does the compactification occur?

* What are 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 How can all gauge fields (including gravity) be unified and quantized?

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

o What can new measurements of gravitational waves contribute to understanding the cosmology (and elementary fields)?
