Description
LHC Workshop: March 21-24, 2007 The workshop "Physics at LHC: From Experiment to Theory" will take place from Wednesday March 21 until Saturday March 24, 2007, and is hosted by the Princeton Center for Theoretical Physics and the Physics Department at Princeton University. The meeting will bring together high energy physicists with expertise ranging from formal theory to collider phenomenology, simulation and experiment. Talks and discussion will focus on issues relevant to the discovery, interpretation and implications of potential new physics signals at the LHC. The meeting is held jointly with the second workskop in the "Monte Carlo Tools for Beyond the Standard Model Physics" (MC4BSM) series, which will take place on March 23 and 24. The goal of the MC4BSM workshop series is to foster interactions and collaborations among model builders, phenomenologists, Monte Carlo experts, and experimentalists.
