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.

In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to postdocs, as well as senior researchers.

The 2018 SLAC Summer Institute celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Standard Model with a broad overview of the multiple successes and the various challenges that the SM still faces. In addition to a survey of the historical development of the different components of the SM, the contemporary theoretical and experimental framework of the SM will be reviewed with prospects of new horizon beyond it.

The theme of the 2017 SSI will be ''Cosmic Opportunities”, focusing on upcoming opportunities to expand our knowledge and understanding of the physics of the universe via cosmological measurements of CMB, Dark Energy, Dark Matter and Gravitational Waves. New fundamental observations are forthcoming from improved experiments and new frontier facilities. What do we hope to learn from this new information ?

MC4BSM is a series of workshops aiming to gather theorists and experimentalists interested in developing Monte Carlo tools to simulate collider signatures of Beyond the Standard Model Physics, and to use such tools in phenomenological studies and in searches for new physics at energy frontier colliders. Since 2006, ten workshops have been held in this series, hosted in the USA, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Korea and China. The focus of MC4BSM 2017 will include: 1) to report new features and new developments of general-purpose Monte Carlo tools; 2) to discuss the experimental needs from the LHC, from dark matter experiments, and from physics studies of future colliders; 3) to offer tutorials to senior PhD students, postdocs, and young faculty interested in using Monte Carlo tools in their research.
 
The workshop will be followed by an ATLAS Support Center satellite meeting on May 15-16.
