Gearing up for LHC13 -- Conference

Europe/Zurich
GGI, Florence

GGI, Florence

Diego Becciolini (INFN - National Institute for Nuclear Physics) , Michele Redi (Universita e INFN (IT))
Description
2015 will be an important year for the Large Hadron Collider. With the start of Run 2 at a centre of mass energy of 13 TeV, it will be possible to probe the existence of heavier states as expected in extensions of the Standard Model motivated by e.g. naturalness and dark matter. Preliminary results from Run 2 could either confirm the Standard Model with high accuracy or provide first hints of new structures at the TeV scale. In either case, the results from Run 2 will determine much of the future of the field for decades. During the conference we are planning to discuss the most recent LHC results and their implications for physics beyond the Standard Model.
