Implications of LHC results for TeV-scale physics: WG2 meeting

TH Theory Conference Room (CERN)

TH Theory Conference Room


Giacomo Polesello (Universita e INFN (IT)), JoAnne Hewett (SLAC), Richard Cavanaugh (Fermilab and U. Illinois Chicago), Sabine Kraml (Universite Joseph Fourier (FR))
Meeting's topics:
  • from the MSSM to simplified models and back
  • sub-TeV stops and light EW-inos
  • difficult spectra (e.g. gluinos below 700 GeV missed by current searches)
  • recommendations for presenting LHC results
  • discussion of the working group report.
This meeting is a joint event with the workshop "Characterization of new physics at the LHC"

WG2 Conveners: J.Hewett, S.Kraml, R.Cavanaugh (CMS), G.Polesello (ATLAS)
"Characterization" Workshop conveners: P.DeJong (ATLAS), C.Issever (ATLAS), S.Padhi (CMS), F.Ratnikov (CMS), P.Schuster, N.Toro.

EVO connection: link will be available from agenda page 30' before the meeting.
