Flavour and the Fourth Family

14th-16th September 2011


This workshop aims at discussing phenomenological aspects of new physics models with additional fermion generations (sequential 4th generation, sterile neutrinos, etc.), focusing on flavour-violating observables:

  • Status of precision flavour observables in the quark sector.
  • Experimental limits on lepton-flavour violating processes.
  • Theoretical models and predictions (rates and correlations).
  • Constraining parameter spaces and distinguishing between models.

Participants at the meeting will come from both theory and experiment, and we anticipate lively discussion on the flavour physics signatures and the potential for discoveries with LHC data.

A detailed agenda will be published later.
