The annual retreat offers the opportunity for all members to better get to know each other and to discuss physics in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Students can present their research projects in short presentations followed by discussions. In addition, distinguished scientists from leading institutions will give lecture courses in the fields of Higgs physics, axions, and gravitational waves.  ... 

18.06.2018 - 22.06.2018
Second Workshop of the Muon g-2 Theory Initiative

In the coming years, experiments at Fermilab and at J-PARC plan to reduce the uncertainties on the already very precisely measured anomalous magnetic moment of the muon by a factor of four. The goal is to resolve the current tantalizing tension between theory and experiment of three to four standard deviations.  On the theory side the hadronic corrections to the anomalous magnetic moment are the dominant sources of uncertainty. They must be determined with better precision in order to unambiguously discover whether or not new physics effects contribute to this quantity..  ...
