      Cross sections, diffraction and forward physics

      The goal of the session is to review recent results from all experiments, and discuss the following points:
      o comparison/correlation/complementarity between the inelastic cross section measured by ALICE/ATLAS/CMS and the forthcoming measurements from TOTEM (e.g. impact of diffractive studies on allowing central experiments to reduce the model dependence in the extrapolation of the inelastic rate)
      o interplay of diffractive measurements performed by central experiments, and potential of TOTEM
      o interplay of very forward neutral energy flow studies by LHCf and central data, and constraints on MC codes for cosmic ray propagation in the atmosphere
