One of the activities of our center  during 2017, is the workshop "Dark Matter Days," which is expected to become one of the main events of CIFFU, and is planned to be held every year.

This workshop will attempt to cover recent progress in Higgs physics and related topics, which is a  traditional reserach area  at BUAP.  Besides covering Higgs phenomenology, both at the Precision and Energy frontiers,  working within the Standard Model and its extensions, it  will also discuss the interface between Higgs physics and Cosmology. This includes: phase transitions, vacuum stability, baryogenesis, scalar dark matter and inflation, among others.


This workshop will serve to identify those reserach topics on fundamental physics, that will serve as an umbrella for  our group, to strenghten the areas we already work on and to start new collaborations on those topics that deserve to be studied.

To fulfill  these objectives we plan to invite leading world experts and outstanding local collegues, to  deliver courses, review talks and specialized seminars on Higgs Physics, Cosmology and related ones.

      Plenary: Connecting Neutrinos with light dark matter candidates 1h

      Dark Matter is an unseen sculptor of the Universe. Its presence affects astrophysical objects at different scales. However, its nature is still unknown. Particle dark matter candidates have been proposed explaining the relic abundance, properties, and indicating search strategies. Unfortunately, the null observational results motivate the community to study other candidates and to propose new search strategies. A possible way to observe dark matter is by affecting the neutrino flavor propagation at galactic scales. This effect might be manifested at PeV neutrino energies, which is the energy window accessible to neutrino telescopes like ICECUBE and KM3NET. In addition, this effect is more sensitive to light dark matter like fuzzy dark matter or any dark matter candidate with masses of keV, like the Majoron or sterile neutrinos.
