A review of the possible optics configurations for the 2015 LHC run will be made. The rationale behind the various scenarios will also be presented together with the latest results of the validation studies. Special runs, such as Van der Meer and high-beta, will be discussed too. Finally, the next steps and the related milestones will be discussed with the goal of achieving a consensual decision on the optics configuration to be used for the LHC in the coming weeks.
