The IBS-ICTP Workshop on Axion-Like Particles is a joint project between IBS-CTPU and ICTP particle theory group.

Recently new ideas on terrestrial, astrophysical, and cosmological probes of axions are constantly being developed with considerable progress. The purpose of this focus program is to encourage young researchers/experts in a collaborative environment to discuss together recent progress on those subjects and to develop innovative ideas for searching for axions. The topic will cover direct detection of the QCD axion and axion-like particles in new laboratory experiments, axion production from astrophysical sources, and possible cosmological scenarios.

The Institute for Basic Science (IBS), comprises 30 centers, including three experimental and theoretical ones on particle physics and cosmology:

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) comprises
several sections working on different fields of theoretical physics and
mathematics including
The High Energy, Cosmology, and Astroparticle (HECAP)

Please note that the Zoom link and password will be required to join the talks, and they will be shared only to registered participants.
