The FASER and SND@LHC experiments have been approved to start running in LHC Run-3. These experiments take advantage of the large particle flux produced at very small angles to the beam in the LHC collisions. This large flux leads to interesting possibilities for detecting neutrinos, or light, weakly-coupled BSM particles with small experiments situated on the collision axis line of sight. The lectures will discuss both the searches and neutrino programme, for the Run 3 experiments, as well as for future experiments that could be installed for HL-LHC running, possible in the proposed Forward Physics Facility.



Felix Kling is postdoctoral researcher at the DESY in the field of theoretical high energy physics. In 2012, Felix received his Master degree at the University of Heidelberg under the supervision of Tilman Plehn. For graduate school, Felix moved to the University of Arizona where he worked on the phenomenology of extended Higgs with Shufang Su. Before graduating in 2016, Felix spent his last year of his PhD at Fermilab through the Fermilab Graduate Student Research Program in Theoretical Physics. From 2016-2019, Felix was postdoctoral researcher at the University of California in Irvine. During this time, he developed new machine-learning based analysis techniques for LHC analysis, and proposed the FASER experiment. From 2019-2021 he was postdoctoral researcher at SLAC. During this time, he was involved in the proposal for the Forward Physics Facility.
