## COLLOQUIUM: One, No One and One Hundred Thousand or Indirect Dark Matter detection as a guide to the path Beyond the Standard Model

March 9 2015, 12:00PM - Seminar room

Speaker: Pasquale Serpico (Annecy, LAPTH)

Abstract: Despite its remarkable success, the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics does not address key facts revealed by cosmological and astrophysical observations. Until now, no signs of new physics have been discovered in laboratory experiments, leaving unclear what is the path chosen by Nature for the physics beyond the SM (BSM).

## COLLOQUIUM:  Cien años de gravedad / One hundred years of nigritude

February 2nd 2015, 12:00PM - Seminar room

Speaker:  Roberto Emparan (U Barcelona & ICREA)

Abstract: In November 1915 Einstein finally arrived at the definitive formulation of General Relativity. Before the end of that same year, Schwarzschild found its most important solution.

## COLLOQUIUM: That's the story": Prof. Roy Glauber remembers the making of the atomic bomb

December 15 2014 - Seminar room

Speaker: José Ignacio Latorre (Universitat de Barcelona), Maria Teresa Soto-Sanfiel (UAB)

Abstract: Nobel laureate Prof. Roy J. Glauber is the last alive scientist from the Theory Division of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos.

## COLLOQUIUM: TH status after ICHEP2014: Searching for New Physics at the next LHC run

November 24 2014 - Seminar room

Speaker:Toni Pich (IFIC & U Valencia)

Abstract: The LHC data has brought a new perspective on our understanding of particle physics.

COLLOQUIUM: Vade retro Standard Model Higgs

October 20 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Christophe Grojean (IFAE-ICREA)

Abstract: With the discovery of the long sought-after Higgs boson at CERN in July 2012, a new state of matter and a new dynamical principle have been revealed as essential building blocks of the fundamental laws of physics.

## COLLOQUIUM: 103 years ago, Ernest Rutherford discovered the nucleus and subatomic physics

September 29 2014, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Fabrice Feinstein (LUPM Université Montpellier)

Abstract: Ernest Rutherford is the at the origin of many discoveries that have laid the foundations of nuclear and elementary particle physics. With JJ Thompson, he described the ionization of gas by radiations. With F. Soddy, he invented the concept of disintegration of radioactive elements.

## COLLOQUIUM:  Hunting for Axions and WISPs with cutting-edge photon sensors

May 19  2014 - Seminar room

Speaker: Cantatore Giovanni (Trieste Universita & INFN)

Abstract: The search for Axions and for other WISPs, Weakly Interacting Slim Particles, has recently picked up considerable pace. Precision experiments looking for WISPs use a panoply of advanced techniques, explore a sector of particle physics outside the Standard Model in and are complementary to accelerator experiments.

## COLLOQUIUM: High Energy Neutrino Astronomy at the South Pole

Monday March 24 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Kael Hanson (Universite Libre de Bruxelles)

Abstract: Abstract: The IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole Station is about to enter it's 4th year of operation with the full 86 string array (IC86).

## COLLOQUIUM: The role of the Higgs in baryogenesis theories

Monday February 24 2014, 12:00 - Seminar room

Speaker: Geraldine Servant (IFAE - ICREA)

Abstract: The Standard Model fails at explaining the matter antimatter asymmetry of the universe encoded in the baryon to photon ratio $n_b/n_{\gamma} \sim 10^{-10}$.

## COLLOQUIUM: QCD made easy: the quest for accuracy

Monday February 3 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Stefano Frixione (CERN & EPFL Lausanne)

Abstract: An important ingredient in a successful physics programme at the LHC is the systematic use of precise computations, which help reduce the theoretical bias on experimental analyses, thanks to the possibility of giving reliable predictions with a minimal amount of tuning on real data.
