The High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (HECAP) section at ICTP is studying some of the most exciting areas in physics today, from string theory to physics at large energy colliders, from neutrino phenomenology to alternative cosmologies.

HECAP collaborates closely with the staff of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), the Department of Theoretical Physics of Trieste University, and with the physicists of the Trieste section of the Italian National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN).

6th Biennial African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications | (smr 3610)
The aim of the Biennial Africal School of Fundamental Physics and Application is to build capacity to harvest, interpret, and exploit the results of current and future physics experiments and to increase proficiency in related applications.
Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition of ASP had to be postponed. It is now being organized in a virtual format: from 19 to 30 July 2021, online lectures, tutorials and workshops will be held for selected students from all over Africa.
Main topics:
Nuclear and Particle Physics;
Astrophysics and Cosmology;
Accelerators, Radiation and Medical Physics;
Materials Physics, Nanoscience;
Biophysics, Fluid and Plasma Physics, Atomic & Molecular Physics;
Light Sources and Neutron Sources;
Theoretical & Applied Mechanics, Earth Science;
Physics Education;
Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency.
Please visit the website of the African School of Fundamental Physics and Applications for further details.
The Scientific Programme of ASP 2021 is available here.

Generalized Cohomology and Physics | (smr 3631)
An ICTP Virtual Meeting
The event will bring together physicists working on various topics in physics that utilize generalized cohomology theories, as well as mathematicians working on functorial quantum field theories and their classification, topological modular forms, cobordisms, and other cohomology theories that appear in physics problems.
Topics:
Classification of symmetry protected topological states (SPTs) and anomalies in QFTs via cobordisms, with applications to condensed matter, particle physics and beyond standard model theories. The mathematical counterpart is classification of extended invertible topological QFTs, defined on manifolds with various structures.
Classification of supersymmetric QFTs via generalized cohomology theories such as KO (real K-theory), TMF (topological modular forms), and their possible generalizations. Construction of new renormalization group flow invariants generalizing (flavored) Witten index.
Swampland program and cobordisms. Cobordisms with extra structures that appear in quantum gravity, String theory and M-theory.
Registration: there is no registration fee.
