The LHC has started its Run2, exploring for the first time the high-energy frontier at 13 TeV. Collected data will give decisive information on the dynamics behind electroweak symmetry breaking, testing weak scale naturalness. Theories with colored top partners, such as SUSY and Composite Higgs paradigms, will either be discovered or pushed to highly-tuned regions of their parameter space. At the same time, the properties of the Higgs boson will be precisely strutinized to unveil its nature and role in the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism.
The TH Institute will be focused on the interpretation of the new data in the context of theories beyond the Standard Model. The aim is to bring world-leading researchers together for an in-depth discussion towards revealing the final clues of the underlying theory of the electroweak scale. The program will also include review talks by the LHC experimental collaborations to report on their latest results and highlight their future projections.
The Institute is funded jointly by CERN and by Korean Government under the CERN-Korea Collaboration agreement.
Registration: The attendance will be limited to around 40 people per week. There is no registration fee. Applications to attend will be open until April 30, 2016.
