We are organizing a four-day workshop on the theme “Prospects for Charged Higgs Discovery at Colliders” in Uppsala, Sweden, 3-6 October 2016. This is the sixth workshop of this kind. By the time of the workshop, the CERN's Large Hadron Collider will have provided several inverse femtobarns of 13 TeV proton-proton collision data to the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Signs of new physics, beyond the Standard Model, are being searched for, especially in the (charged) Higgs sector. Results on charged Higgs boson searches at the LHC, but also at B-factories, will be presented at the workshop. Moreover, new theoretical and phenomenological ideas concerning Beyond-the-Standard-Model (BSM) Higgs bosons have been developed since the last workshop in 2014 and will be discussed.
The plan is to bring together experimentalists and theorists to review the development of charged Higgs boson searches at colliders, analysis methods, theory/phenomenology, generator-level simulations, and strategies for future experimental data analysis. We are, as in the previous years, aiming at a lively, instructive and fruitful workshop. In addition to the invited talks (30-40 minutes including discussion), we solicit and welcome contributed talks (15+5 minutes). If you want to give a contributed talk, please submit a (be it tentative) title and abstract by latest September 1st, 2016. Write-ups of the talks will be published in proceedings.
Most sessions of the workshop will be held at Gustavianum, Uppsala University, in downtown Uppsala, except on Tuesday October 4th in the afternoon.
The proceedings for Charged 2016 will be published in Proceedings of Science (PoS):
* authors will be contacted by the organisers and provided with login data to access their personal pages on PoS (where the style files are available)
* from their PoS pages authors can upload a PDF file (plus any attachments), with a simple two-step procedure.

The organizers wish to thank the Wenner-Gren foundation and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, through its Nobel Institute for Physics, for their financial support.
