Description

The LHC Theory Initiative is a program of grants to encourage theoretical research projects that will assist the CERN Large Hadron Collider experiments in reaching their full potential.  The LHC Theory Initiative Fellows Meeting gives an opportunity for current and former LHC-TI Fellows to present the work that they have done under this program.  The LHC-TI program is ending, and so this will be the last meeting of the fellows.

Registration is now available! Please register.  If you log into Indico before registering, your registration will automatically be linked to your Indico account.

The meeting will be webcast using BlueJeans.  Here is the dial-in information:
