TRIUMF will be holding its annual Science Week 2022 during the week of July 18-22, with this edition planned as a hybrid event with both in-person and remote participation. This year we are organizing Science Week in the context of developing the next Five-Year Plan 2025-2030.
Science Week 2022 will provide a platform to develop new perspectives for TRIUMF's science drivers and celebrate recent achievements across our research portfolio, while also providing the opportunity for discussion of major science directions and new initiatives for the next Five-Year Plan. These directions will be guided by the TRIUMF’s 20-Year Vision, which will be formally released before Science Week.
The Standard Model (SM) of elementary particle physics has been outstanding in explaining much of the microscopic phenomena observed to date. However, there are a number of fundamental questions, about our Universe, it cannot resolve. Open puzzles, such as the nature of dark matter, the baryon asymmetry of our Universe and the origin of Neutrino masses (the lightest neutral particles in the SM) point to the existence of some new physics beyond our known fundamental interactions. Hence, the key questions particle physicists are trying to address are ‘does this new physics interact with the SM?’, and 'If so, how can we experimentally find these interactions?’. In this talk, I will give a brief overview of the theoretical landscape of new physics ideas designed to solve some of the most open fundamental questions in our universe and the new directions for experimentally hunting for these new particles, from the laboratory to the cosmos.
