Third Nuclear and Particle Theory Meeting

May 10-12, 2021

The Department of Physics and the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences invite you to attend the third edition of the “Nuclear and Particle Theory Meeting”  held May 10-12, 2021. The focus of this meeting is on Beyond the Standard Model Physics with Nucleons and Nuclei. This small and informal meeting is meant to bring together the theoretical and experimental nuclear and particle physics communities with the scope of fostering new collaborations.

This initiative will also be beneficial to local post-docs and students as they will be exposed to the current research programs. The meeting will be held remotely over two and a half days.

This event is generously supported by the

Organizers: Bhupal DevSaori Pastore and Maria Piarulli
