The International Meeting on Fundamental Physics is the Spanish Symposium on high energy particle physics with the longest tradition. Since its creation in 1973, it has been organized on an annual basis by each of the main Spanish groups in turn. Its scientific programs have included dedicated reviews with the latest results in the fields of particle and astroparticle physics and cosmology.

The 2024 edition is organized by the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) and the Universitat de Barcelona (UB). The program includes latest experimental results and theoretical advances in flavour and neutrino physics, particle physics, dark matter, cosmology, axions, gravitational waves, neutrino and gamma ray messengers. Dedicated talks will overview the detector and computing technological challenges for future accelerators as well as for rare event search experiments. The meeting will also include sessions scientific policy and strategy in particle physics, in particular within the Spanish community. We will also have special sessions to celebrate 50 years of the J/Psi particle and of Hawking radiation.
