8th Odense Winter School on Theoretical Physics

This year the school will focus on open questions in high energy physics and how, by addressing these questions, we can help going beyond our current knowledge in particle physics and open the doors to future discoveries.

The lectures will spand a broad range of topics ranging from formal aspects of theoretical high energy physics to current particle physics experiments performed at the LHC. In this way much ground will be covered which we hope will benefit the student on his/her route to becoming an independent researcher. All lectures are given by experts in their fields.

Important dates


The conference will take place at CP3-Origins at the main campus of the Southern Denmark University in Odense, Denmark. Lectures will be held in CP3’s seminar room.
