Already based on only 40 pb-1 of 2010 data the LHC experiments have searched for supersymmetry in a variety of signatures and extended the direct constraints previously set by the Tevatron and LEP experiments. With the 2011 dataset which is expected to correspond to a luminosity of a few fb-1, the reach will be extended significantly and offers the best chance of actually observing supersymmetric particles since the theory first was invented by Julius Wess and Bruno Zumino in 1974.
We thus host this workshop to review the experimental results, and to evaluate to which extent all theoretical possibilities are well covered in the ongoing experimental searches. The workshop is primarily targeted at students and young postdocs.
