The LHC collaborations are pursuing searches for new physics in a vast variety of channels. While the collaborations typically provide themselves interpretations of their results, for instance in terms of simplified models, the full understanding of the implications of these searches requires the interpretation of the experimental results in the context of all kinds of theoretical models. This is a very active field, with close theory-experiment interaction and with several public tools being developed.

A Forum on the interpretation of the LHC results for BSM studies was thus initiated to discuss topics related to the BSM (re)interpretation of LHC data, including the development of the necessary public recasting tools and related infrastructure, and to and to provide a platform for a continued interaction between theorists and with the experiments.

This is the forth workshop of this Forum. Previous meetings took place

  1. workshop: 15-17 June 2016 (kick-off meeting) at CERN
  2. workshop: 12-14 Dec 2016 at CERN
  3. workshop: 16-18 Oct 2017 at Fermilab

For information relative to housing and laptop registration, please check

VIDYO connection will be available.

NB1: The re-interpretation workshop will be followed by the Long-Lived-Particles (LLP) Community workshop on May 16-18, with May 16 being a joint day for the two activities.

NB2: Tools developers and interested people are invited to stay on on May 17-18 for follow-up work related to the workshop.

Access to CERN: if you don't hold a valid CERN access card, make sure you request it in the registration page
