XLVIII International Meeting on Fundamental Physics

2021, Sep 06 -- Sep 11

M. Asorey (U. Zaragoza)
I. G. Irastorza (U. Zaragoza)

The International Meeting on Fundamental Physics is the Spanish Symposium on high energy particle physics with longest tradition. Since its creation in 1973, it has been organized on an annual basis by each of the main Spanish groups in turn (check list of previous meetings). Its scientific programs have included dedicated reviews with the latest results in the fields of particle and astroparticle physics and cosmology.

In the 2021 edition, organized by the Centro de Astropartículas y Física de Altas Energías (CAPA) of Universidad de Zaragoza in collaboration with the Laboratorio Subterráneo de Canfranc (LSC), sessions will be devoted to review the latest experimental results and their theoretical and phenomenological implications. The program also includes sessions on neutrino physics, dark matter searches, ultra-high energy gamma and cosmic ray physics, gravitational waves and cosmology. Dedicated sessions will summarize current initiatives on experiments beyond colliders and the status of ongoing and planned future large facilities. A session will be devoted to discuss the Spanish scientific policy and strategy in particle physics.


Benasque, is a beautiful village located 1140 m above sea level in a valley in the heart of the Pyrenees. The beautiful landscapes and the proximity to the highest mountains of Pyrenees make Benasque one of the main tourist sites in the region.

The venue of the meeting will the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual, a 25 years old facility devoted to the organization of international scientific meetings (http://benasque.org).
