The conference on New Physics at the Large Hadron Collider will be held at the Nanyang Executive Centre from 29 February to 4 March 2016 at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

 

The Standard Theory of Particle Physics describes successfully the observed strong and electroweak interactions, but it is not a final theory of physics, since many aspects are not understood:

1. How can gravity be introduced in the Standard Theory?

2. How can we understand the observed masses of the leptons and quarks as well as the flavor mixing angles?

3. Why are the masses of the neutrinos much smaller than the masses of the charged leptons?

4. Is the new boson, discovered at CERN, the Higgs boson of the Standard Theory or an excited weak boson?

5. Are there new symmetries at very high energy, e.g. a broken super-symmetry?

6. Are the leptons and quarks point-like or composite particles?

7. Are the leptons and quarks at very small distances one-dimensional objects, e.g. superstrings?

 

These and related problems will be discussed at the conference, including possible new discoveries at the Large Hadron Collider.
