Date:  2019-01-28  -  2019-02-01

Location:  CERN, Switzerland

Theories with (classical or quantum) scale-invariance provide a dynamical origin of all mass scales and present a number of interesting aspects: they are an appealing framework to address the hierarchy problem and lead to naturally flat inflationary potentials and dark matter candidates. The aim of the theory institute is to discuss scale invariance in particle physics and cosmology. In particular, the inclusion of gravity in a scale-invariant framework might have far-reaching consequences and will be discussed at this meeting.
