Europe/Zurich timezone

The main goals of this workshop are to discuss

  • signatures which have not been explored (or only poorly explored) until Run 2 (new final states, final states with unusual objects, final states which require developing new triggers/selections/experimental techniques)
  • ways to improve the interpretations of currently used DM benchmarks (update of parameter scans, new parameter scans, etc.)
  • interplay with other experiments (LLP, low-mass signatures, etc.)
How to contribute
The organisers and session chairs will collect a list of high-priority studies to be done and circulate them by the end of December 2023 to the general announcement mailing list ( Make sure you are subscribed there.
Once you have identified a topic on which you would like to contribute, get in touch with the organisers and session chairs to express your interest, specifying the area you would like to contribute and the tools with which you are familiar. The latter is for the organising committee to have an idea about which studies might require approvals within the experimental collaborations.
For theory contributions: feel free to submit an abstract! in order to stay in line with the workshop goals, when submitting an abstract please indicate the following:
  • which signatures your model predicts, and why these are new (have they previously been explored at the LHC experiments? 
  • would the experiments have sensitivity in Run 3? 
  • are there searches that could be used to put constraints on the proposed models, possibly via a re-interpretation?) 
For abstract submissions, please indicate the session that you think your contribution best fits in.
Some more information on how to contribute can be found in this presentation.
Workshop dinner
We plan to have a workshop dinner on one of the evenings of the workshop at a restaurant close to CERN or in downtown Geneva. The date and place will be fixed after the registration closes. Further information and a poll to collect participation in the dinner will be circulated shortly after the registration end date. 
Access to the CERN site
Visitor badges will be provided automatically to people who do not have a CERN access card. Please indicate in the registration form whether you will need a badge.
The workshop is cost-free.
Travel and accommodation
Please make your own travel arrangements and book your accommodation early on. 
Note: If you receive any email offering you accommodation for the event, e.g. from "Global Travel Experts" please ignore it - this is a well-known scam targeting registrants of indico events.

Note that the timetable is temporary and will be fixed only after the abstract submission closes!
The call for abstracts is open
You can submit an abstract for reviewing.
Registration for this event is currently open.
