The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual two-week-long Summer School tradition since 1973. Lectures will generally be given in the mornings during both weeks. Afternoons include additional lectures and topical talks which alternate with discussion sessions, student project sessions and tours. Evening events include
poster sessions and social activities. SSI is especially targeted for graduate students and postdocs while senior researchers are also welcome.
The theme of the 2019 SLAC Summer Institute will encompass the broad landscape of flavor physics associated with quarks, charge leptons and neutrinos. Lectures will cover contemporary theoretical developments, current experimental results and future frontiers, as well as discussions of the various flavor puzzles and anomalies. The program will also include discussions of the fundamental origin of the Standard Model family structure and the prospects towards the next level of insight.
