2012: a milestone year for Particle and Astroparticle Physics

Local Organizers: IFIC-València

The XL International Meeting on Fundamental Physics will be held in Benasque, Huesca (Aragonese Pyrenees, Spain) starting on the 25th of May until the 3rd of June 2012.

Benasque is a beautiful mountain village located 1140 m above sea level, in a valley in the heart of the Pyrenees, about 140 km north from the city of Zaragoza. The beautiful landscapes and the proximity to large ski resorts make Benasque one of the main tourist sites in the region.

The Spanish High Energy Physics community has organized the International Meeting on Fundamental Physics since 1973. This year edition will focus on the latest results from the LHC, neutrino, astroparticle and cosmic ray experiments. Two dedicated mini-workshops will complement the traditional structure of this workshop. A special LHC mini-workshop will be devoted to discuss the status of the latest LHC results and its implications for High Energy Physics future projects. A second mini-workshop will review the present situation of Flavour Physics with emphasis on the Spanish participation in this field. Time will be allocated to discus the Spanish strategy and organization in Particle and Astroparticle Physics in view of the European Strategy discussion.
