The conference "Scalars 2023" will be held in Warsaw in September 2023. The meeting is organized jointly by the Faculty of Physics
at the University of Warsaw
and the Division for Physics of Fundamental Interactions
of the Polish Physical Society
. The conference will take place at the OCHOTA campus of the University of Warsaw. The meeting will start with the registration on September 13th (Wednesday) in the morning (8-9 am) followed by an opening at 8:50 am. The conference "Scalars 2023" is a continuation of earlier "Scalars" organized in Warsaw in 2011
. The goal of the meeting is to provide an opportunity to discuss various aspects of physics of scalar particles. In particular we plan to cover the following issues:
SM Higgs boson: theory and experiment
Extensions of the minimal scalar sector of the Standard Model, e.g. multi Higgs-dublet models, doublet-singlet models, the Georgi-Machacek model, ...
Experimental constraints on possible scalar sectors
Effective field theory in Higgs physics
Scalars in cosmology: dark matter, baryogenesis, phase transitions, inflatons, axions, relaxions, etc.
Scale-invariant scalar sectors
Composite Higgs bosons
Elementary scalars within extra dimensions: gauge-Higgs unification, stabilization of extra dimensions, radions, bulk scalars, etc...
Fundamental scalars within supersymmetric extensions of the SM
Future experimental searches for scalars, e.g. at LHC, FCC or ILC
