Invitation Only

All attendees must comply with the Simons Foundation’s Code of Conduct.

This workshop aims to catalyze interdisciplinary initiatives targeting novel probes of physics beyond the Standard Model between a diverse group of (predominantly) external particle theorists and internal astrophysicists. Signatures of new physics arise in a variety of astrophysical contexts, in particular those that are well-represented by the domain knowledge at the center for computational astrophysics (CCA). Specifically, we plan to invite theorists who work on new physics modifying the standard paradigms in cosmology, galaxy formation, gravitational waves, plasma physics, stellar physics, and compact objects. By creating such a platform, this workshop will allow us to coordinate with the broader theorist community, especially in a way that will encourage lasting collaborations. 

We believe that this workshop not only contributes to advancing scientific knowledge but also positions the CCA as a key player in cutting-edge research at the intersection of particle physics and astrophysics. We look forward to the opportunity to host this event and facilitate meaningful connections and breakthroughs in our understanding of the Universe.

    • We are located at 160/162 5th Avenue. The entrance to our buildings are on 21st Street.
    • All attendees must check-in with security in the lobby each day before proceeding to the event location. You will need a government issued photo ID to gain entry into all buildings. Please allot extra time to check-in with security.
    • An event badge will be given to you on day one which should reduce the amount of time needed to check-in. If you lose your badge, you can request a new one through event admin.
    • All participants must clear the event floor at the end of each day to allow for a cleaning crew and facilities team to come in and reset the space.
    • Anyone who wishes to stay at Flatiron Institute may do so if accompanied by a Flatiron Institute employee. If you remain onsite, you must move the 5th, 6th floors (CCA), or the 11th floor dining area of 162 Fifth Ave.
    • COVID Protocols
      • Individuals are welcome to continue masking in any setting at any time if they so choose. Please respect your colleagues’ choices as to where and when they wish to mask.
      • Anyone experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should remain away from the offices and test (rapid or PCR) at the earliest opportunity.
      • Consistent with current CDC guidance, anyone testing positive will be required to isolate away from the offices for at least 5 full days, returning once symptoms (if any) have fully resolved and the person is testing negative via rapid test.
      • All positive cases should be reported to the event host and/or administrative staff.
