Workshop on New Ideas In Low-Energy Tests Of Fundamental Physics

I would like to announce a  workshop  at the intersection of atomic physics with particles and fields (Ok, it has some elements of cosmology too). The workshop is to be held at the Perimeter Institute in mid-June of 2014. Having visited Perimeter for a couple of weeks, I highly recommend its stimulating environment. Here is the announcement:


Conference Date:  Monday, June 16, 2014 (All day) to Thursday, June 19, 2014 (All day)

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together members of theoretical and experimental communities interested in finding new fundamental applications to continuing advancement of new high-precision tools in AMO physics. The foci of the workshop will include novel approaches to searches for axions, axion-like particles and other light exotic fields, which can serve as dark matter candidates; new ideas in application of the networks of time-correlated devices (atomic magnetometers, atomic clocks etc.); new ways of testing properties of gravitational interactions and fundamental constants as well as developing new gravitational wave detectors.

Scientific Organizers:

Asimina Arvanitaki, Stanford University
Dmitry Budker, University of California, Berkeley & Helmholtz Institute, Mainz
Andrei Derevianko, University of Nevada
Peter Graham, Stanford University
Derek Jackson Kimball, California State University
Maxim Pospelov, Perimeter Institute & University of Victoria
