Venue: Online event


The matter-antimatter asymmetry is one of the fundamental mysteries motivating research of physics beyond the Standard Model. Research in this area literately attempts to answer the question of why are we here. Unfortunately, the most elegant explanations frequently involve physics many orders of magnitude above the weak scale. There has been much recent progress on how to test these ideas.  Furthermore, the advent of gravitational waves astronomy opens a new observational window on the origin of matter in the universe. 

Given the fundamental nature of this problem and the ``out of the box'' thinking required to tackle it, we will dedicate a focus week in early January with a minimum number of talks to allow room for discussion and brainstorming. The talks that are given will summarize recent progress in the two main paradigms (Leptogenesis and Affleck Dine) and summarize other high scale paradigms with an emphasis on how to test them.
