The annual Theory Meeting on Particle Physics Phenomenology (KEK-­PH2018) together with the 3rd KIAS-NCTS-KEK Joint Workshop will be held at KEK between December 4 - 7, 2018. This meeting covers many topics in Particle Physics and Cosmology, from the Standard Model and models beyond the Standard Model to particle cosmology and astrophysics. We plan to discuss recent developments in modeling Physics Beyond the Standard Model with their phenomenological aspects and also learn about the latest results and status of various ongoing and planned experiments.

The meeting includes talks by invited speakers and short talks by participants. All the talks will be given in English. We aim to provide an opportunity, not only for experts but also for master/Ph.D course students, to learn recent developments in particle physics phenomenology and to activate intensive discussions. The participants will also have the opportunity to present their work through poster presentations.


Registration is open now! Deadline: October 31, 2018.

A limited amount of support for local expenses (travel within Japan and KEK dormitory expenses) is available. Unfortunately, we cannot cover International travel.

Late registration is available with no financial support. The deadline for requesting VISA letter and local support is September 30, 2018.
