Light Dark World 2016
July 11-15, 2016
IBS Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe, Daejeon, Korea
Light Dark World 2016 is the inaugural meeting of the Light Dark World International Forum. It will be held on July 11-15, 2016 at the Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe (CTPU) of the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), located at Daejeon in South Korea.
Light Dark World 2016 will bring together global experts from experiment and theory to discuss recent advances and develop new opportunities to study new light particles beyond the Standard Model, including light gauge boson, light scalar, light dark matter, axion, axion-like particle, and light sterile neutrinos.
- If you want to attend the forum dinner (Thursday evening), please pay KRW 20,000 at the CTPU admin office on your first day, unless you are a speaker.
- If you want to join the excursion (Friday afternoon), please pay KRW 20,000 at the CTPU admin office on your first day.
