Description

This Workshop, which takes place during the last week of the 2011 TH/LPCC Institute on LHC physics, will be the first in a series of meetings devoted to evaluating the implications of recent results from the LHC, and elsewhere, for TeV-scale physics, and to discuss the impact of these results on the future strategy for particle physics.

The Workshop continues the activity of the 2009 TH Institute "From the LHC to a Future Collider", 
https://indico.cern.ch/conferenceDisplay.py?confId=40437, whose findings were documented in http://arXiv.org/abs/0909.3240.

The results will be summarised in a document, to be submitted as input to the planned 2012 update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics. The participation and input of all those interested, experimentalists and theorists, is welcome and encouraged!

The workshop activities will be focused around three working groups investigating different aspects of TeV-scale physics, namely

  • Signals of electroweak symmetry breaking (conveners: S.Heinemyer, M.Kado, C.Mariotti, G.Weiglein, A.Weiler)
  • Signatures with missing energy (conveners: R.Cavenaugh, J.Hewett, S.Kraml, G.Polesello) 
  • Other signatures of possible BSM physics (conveners: C.Grojean, D.Martinez, J.Santiago Perez, P.Savard, S.Worm)

The task of the working groups is to assess the possible interpretations of the experimental results in view of their implications for the future strategy of particle physics. 

The charge for the first meeting is to summarise the experimental situation at this time, to start the discussion of possible interpretations, and to define the lines of work that should be carried out. We expect this to be followed by more informal meetings of the working groups, leading to a final plenary meeting, foreseen to take place in May or June 2012, such that the final document  will be ready in time for the ‘Orsay-type’ meeting of the European Strategy update. The precise dates will be decided once the timeline of the Strategy process is finalized by CERN Council.
