Chicago 2012 Workshop on LHC Physics

Description
This is the second Chicago workshop. The aim of the workshop will be to study the possible tests of weak scale models leading to an explanation of the observed Higgs-like signatures, as well as a more general study of the strategies to search for new particles in different final state
signatures at the LHC. The workshop will consist of sessions organized by analysis
signatures and will include theorists and experimentalists, to trigger collaborations
bridging the two communities.

The workshop will be held in Chicago downtown between Nov 12 and 14, 2012.
