We are organizing a four-day workshop on the theme “Prospects for Charged Higgs Discovery at Colliders” in Uppsala, Sweden, 25-28 September 2018. This is the seventh workshop of this kind. By the time of the workshop, the CERN's Large Hadron Collider will have provided most of its Run-2 proton-proton collision data at 13 TeV to the ATLAS and CMS experiments. Signs of new physics are being searched for, especially in the (charged) Higgs sector. Results on charged and other Beyond-the-Standard-Model (BSM) Higgs boson searches at the LHC will be presented at the workshop. Moreover, new theoretical and phenomenological ideas concerning BSM Higgs bosons have been developed since the last workshop in 2016 and will be discussed.
The plan is to bring together experimentalists and theorists to review the development of charged Higgs boson searches at colliders, analysis methods, theory/phenomenology, generator-level simulations, and strategies for future experimental data analysis. We are, as in the previous years, aiming at a lively, instructive and fruitful workshop. In addition to the invited talks (30-40 minutes including discussion), we solicit and welcome contributed talks (15+5 minutes). If you want to give a contributed talk, please submit a (be it tentative) title and abstract by latest August 15th, 2018. Write-ups of the talks will be published in proceedings.
All sessions of the workshop will be held at the Gustavianum Museum, in downtown Uppsala.
The proceedings for Charged 2018 will be published in Proceedings of Science (PoS), see proceedings page for more info.
Charged 2018 is supported in part by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Institute for Physics, and by the Wenner-Gren Foundation.
