The Standard Model cannot explain the observed baryon asymmetry of the Universe. This is a clear sign of new physics beyond the Standard Model. There have been many recent theoretical developments to address this question. Critically, these new physics models that generate the baryon asymmetry have a wide range of repercussions for many areas of theoretical and experimental particle physics. The origin of the baryon asymmetry of the universe could be connected to other mysteries in our universe, like dark matter, the origin of neutrino masses and other BSM topics. 

This workshop will explore new ideas for generating the matter-antimatter asymmetry and explore synergies between theory and experiment. While the main theme is baryogenesis, we encourage people working on all aspects of BSM physics to apply.

Our goals are as follows.

  •   Bring together experts working on various new proposals on baryogenesis.
  •   Propose novel ideas about generating the BAU.
  •   Discuss connections between generating the BAU and other big problems in particles, e.g. dark matter and the origins of neutrino masses.
  •   Investigate the reach of current experiments in distinguishing between baryogenesis models and uncover new experimental frontiers to search for new physics observables in connection to the generation of the BAU.
