TAE 2024 - International Workshop on High Energy Physics


C. Cuesta (CIEMAT, Madrid), D. G. Figueroa (IFIC, CSIC - U. Valencia), M. Martinez (CAPA, U. Zaragoza), J. R. Peláez (IPARCOS, U. Complutense de Madrid)

The 'Taller de Altas Energias' (TAE) - Spain's annual High Energy Physics PhD school -, is an international postgraduate training program aimed at first and second year graduated students who are starting their research on experimental or theoretical High Energy Physics, Astroparticles and Cosmology.

TAE 2024 will take place at Centro de Ciencias Pedro Pascual (CCBPP) in Benasque, a beautiful village located in the Spanish Pyrenees, just at the bottom of their highest mountain in the Spanish Pyrenees (Pico Aneto), with a wonderful countryside/hiking environment. The CCBPP is an international meeting infrastructure that provides excellent facilities and an agreeable atmosphere to allow the participants to interact with senior researchers, and also to carry their work during the meeting. The lecture halls and seminars for discussion sessions are located in the Centre. Computing and electronic communication facilities are available.
