Europe/Zurich timezone
The LHC shutdown in early 2013 marks a first milestone of LHC data taking, at which it becomes important to re-evaluate the status and prospects for discoveries of physics beyond the SM. It is also a good point to sharpen and refine the calculational tools required to interpret LHC data. The workshop will bring together theorists with expertise in advanced collider-physics calculations and those specialising in model building. Members of the LHC collaborations will review the latest experimental data.
