The registration deadline has been extended until January 15

The Spanish High Energy Physics community has organized the International Meeting on Particle Physics since 1973, covering theory and experiments from accelerator, neutrino, astroparticle and cosmic ray physics.

In the 2014 edition half of the sessions will be dedicated to 2-3 hour courses on Beyond the Standard Model, Flavour Physics and Neutrino Physics. Recent LHC results and their impact on theory will be another focal point of the meeting. Flavour will be one of the main topics of discussion, as the meeting will include several sessions of the Spanish Network of Flavour Physics.

The meeting will take place at the Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual (http://benasque.org), and is supported by CPAN, Red de Física de Partículas, and Centro de Ciencias de Benasque Pedro Pascual.


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

Transportation to the ski center of Cerler will be provided during the breaks of the meeting (11:00-16:00h).
The valley offers many interesting alternatives for those not skiing.
