Since the discovery of the Higgs boson, there have been active planning efforts for the future of high energy physics beyond the LHC. Several Higgs factories based on electron-positron colliders have been actively considered. This meeting, to be held at the Catholic University of America during April 22-23, 2020, will focus on the Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC), and other lepton colliders such as the Future Circular Collider (FCC-ee), and the International Linear Collider (ILC). The main goal is promoting collaborations among communities working on future high energy colliders as well as facilitating the formation of international collaborations. Thoughts about the unique requirements on detectors at circular colliders will be considered.
The meeting follows very successful meetings in Chicago, Rome, and Oxford. To be held right after the APS DPF meeting, it will also serve as an opportunity platform to engage with the broader HEP community in the US, in preparation for possible community planning exercises in the future.
The event will convene on Catholic University's campus Wednesday, April 22 through Thursday April 23.
