PITT PACC Workshop: BSM circa 2020

US/Eastern
Carnegie Room, Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, 100 Lytton Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213
Description

BSM circa 2020 will gather world experts working in the area of physics beyond the Standard Model to discuss what we have learned from the LHC and other recent experiments, examine the current status of traditional popular BSM frameworks like Supersymmetry, and explore novel new approaches in BSM model building and phenomenology. The structure of the workshop will be designed to stimulate intense discussion and new collaboration among the participants.

The workshop will start on Thursday morning and end on Saturday at lunch time. We will hold a banquet on Friday evening.
