The aim of the SATPP is to provide exposure/training to postdoctoral fellows and advanced/mature theoretical particle physics students in the final years of their PhDs, who already have a fair amount of expertise in quantum field theory and topics in particle physics. The goal is not just to provide details of the spectrum of ideas/mechanisms but also to supply essential technical tools that will allow the young researchers to think about these critically and constructively. 

As a pilot for this school, this year we begin with “Selected Topics in Effective Field Theories (EFTs).” EFTs, which provide systematic ways of “describing” the physics of a scale using only the relevant degrees of freedom, have become essential tools for  understanding our universe. From describing the unknown at the TeV scale or above, to understanding/calculating observables involving mesons, baryons.  EFTs are increasingly turning out to be the appropriate language. In this edition, the school will span two weeks with the first week focusing on topics of low energy EFTs and the second week concentrating on high energy EFTs.

ICTS is committed to building an environment that is inclusive, non discriminatory and welcoming of diverse individuals. We especially encourage the participation of women and other under-represented groups.

Accommodation will be provided for outstation participants at our on campus guest house.

Eligibility: Postdoctoral fellows and advanced PhD students pursuing high energy phenomenology who are well versed in quantum field theory and the Standard Model of particle physics. Senior experts in other disciplines interested in Effective Field Theories are also welcome.
