April 23: Thanks to all participants. It was a great workshop!

ALPS2018: April 15 - 20, 2018. Save the date!


With a successful start and incredible performance, LHC is collecting data at 13 TeV centre-of-mass energy since 2015. The implications of LHC searches for new physics at TeV scale is a topic of intense interest. Together with the results from other experiments, the LHC results will define the theory landscape of possible new physics scenarios at TeV scale in the coming decade. The aim of this workshop is to take a fresh look at this theoretical landscape in the light of new LHC results at 13 TeV. The workshop will bring together particle theorists and experimentalists to brainstorm on questions ranging from the origin of the 16-decade hierarchy between Planck and Electroweak scale to particle nature of dark matter, from possible solutions to the hierarchy problem to the exciting prospects of finding new physics in flavour precision measurements. We will further discuss new strategies shaping the future of particle physics program and envisage the potential of high luminosity LHC program.

The days are divided into morning sessions with keynote talks, and  late afternoon sessions that will comprise shorter presentations on more specialized topics. In addition we aim for a Young Scientist Forum, where our younger colleagues are invited to claim the stage.

The meeting will take place at the Obergurgl University Centre, in the ski-resort town of Obergurgl, located in the upper Oetztal Valley in Tirol, Austria.
