CETUP* 2024

CETUP* Mission:

To promote organized research in physics, cosmology and astrophysics, geoscience, and other fields related to science done in underground laboratories worldwide via individual and collaborative research in a dynamic atmosphere of intense scientific interactions.

Around the globe more than 20 underground laboratories provide space for experiments in nuclear and particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology, and geosciences, drawing scientists from all over the world. In response to the growing interests in underground science, the Center for Theoretical Underground Physics and Related Areas (CETUP*) brings together scientists working in theoretical and experimental aspects of a variety of disciplines during its annual workshop.

CETUP* provides a stimulating environment for creative thinking and open discussion. Researchers with varying experience, - and from different countries and scientific backgrounds, collaborate to attract rising young scientists, discuss a broad range of topics, and collaborate. The combined expertise allows this intellectual community to address the most pressing questions in fundamental research.

Since its inception in 2011, the workshop has been hosted in the Black Hills of South Dakota in Lead/Deadwood, with the Sanford Underground Research Facility (SURF), the deepest underground laboratory in the United States. The area’s natural beauty attracts tourists year-round, and has strong connections to Native American cultures and history.
