Plenary Talk Standard Model & Beyond 1C: LHC Experiments II

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) gives us a unique opportunity to study hadron interactions at the collision energy of 10^17 eV in the laboratory system. The data collected so far by the LHCf experiment is proving instrumental in increasing our comprehension of the chemical composition of Ultra High Energy Cosmic-Rays (UHECRs) by improving hadron interaction models used in air shower simulations of UHECRs. The analysis has now reached a stage where results can be presented and energy and p_T spectra of various neutral particles can be shown. The data has been collected at centre of mass energies of 900 GeV and 7 TeV. In the talk an outlook will also be given on future collider runs with proton-ions and proton-proton at centre of mass energies of 14 TeV.
