This is the kickoff event for a series of meetings, running throughout 2018, with plenary events and intermediate periods of working group activities.
The main goal of the Workshop is to review, extend and further refine our understanding of the physics potential of the High Luminosity LHC.
The workshop aims to stimulate new ideas for measurements and observables, to extend the LHC discovery reach, to improve the modeling of LHC phenomena towards measurements at ultimate precision, and to prepare to exploit the HL-LHC data to the fullest possible extent.
The Workshop will also provide the opportunity to begin a more systematic study of physics at the HE-LHC, a new pp collider in the LHC ring with CM energy in the range of 27 TeV.
The activity of the Workshop will extend over a one year period, driven by working groups covering the following areas:
QCD, EW and top quark physics
Higgs and EWSB
The results of the Workshop will be documented in a Yellow Report, to be completed in time (~end 2018) for submission to the next review of the European strategy for particle physics.
Several rooms have been pre-booked in the CERN Hostel, available on a fist-come first-served basis. See the "Logistics" link in the Menu to the left for details. Deadline for Hostel reservations: Thursday September 28!
