We are pleased to announce the kick-off workshop of the "Physics Beyond Colliders" Study Group which has recently
been set up by CERN Management. The workshop will be held at CERN, Geneva, on September 6-7, 2016.
The main goal of the Study Group is to explore the opportunities offered by the CERN accelerator complex and infrastructure to provide new insight into some of today's outstanding questions in particle physics through projects complementary to high-energy colliders and other initiatives in the world.
The focus is on fundamental questions that are similar in spirit to those addressed by high-energy colliders, but that may require different types of experiments. The kick-off workshop is intended to stimulate new ideas for such projects, for which we encourage submission of abstracts.
Details on the workshop programme, registration and abstract submission, as well as the mandate of the Study Group, can be found on the
The workshop is opened to the whole particle physics community and we invite you to distribute this announcement to anyone you feel might be interested.
