Standard Model at 50: Successes and Challenges


Date: July 30 - Aug 10, 2018
Location: Kavli Auditorium, SLAC

The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual two-week-long Summer School tradition since 1973. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of special lectures, topical conference talks, discussion sessions, student projects and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to postdocs, as well as senior researchers.

The 2018 SLAC Summer Institute celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Standard Model with a broad overview of the multiple successes and the various challenges that the SM still faces. In addition to a survey of the historical development of the different components of the SM, the contemporary theoretical and experimental framework of the SM will be reviewed with prospects of new horizon beyond it.
