The aim of the workshop is to bring together young researchers on the PhD and postdoc level with leading experts both from experimental and theoretical particle physics. The workshop will provide a platform to report and interpret the latest results from LHC Run 2. The prospects for the discovery of new physics will be evaluated, and needs both on the experimental and the theoretical side will be discussed in order to be able to explore the LHC data at full extent. Besides scientific talks there will be discussion rounds, and a poster session will be organized with contributions from the younger scientists. The seminar is kindly supported by the Heraeus foundation.

The winners of the poster award are:

Julia I. Djuvsland
'Measurement of WWγ final states with the ATLAS detector'

Nils Faltermann
'Measurement of the t-channel single-top quark production cross section at 13 TeV with the CMS detector'

Peter Tornambè
'SUSY searches at sqrt(s)=13 TeV with two same-sign leptons or three leptons, jets and EmissT at the ATLAS detector - Background estimation and latest analysis results'
