The idea is to gather together LHC experimentalists and theory colleagues to discuss possible developments for Run 3 and Run 4. In particular, we are interested in exploring if there are any new physics scenarios that we have yet to exploit, new developments that could enable new searches, and technical innovations to improve the sensitivity of measurements.
The format will be rather informal to facilitate the discussions. We plan on having theoretical overview of the following physics areas:
- Precision — Higgs & SM (i.e. VBS)
- BSM direct searches
- BSM Higgs
We would also like to discuss new techniques mainly impacting:
- Tracking/flavor tagging
- Machine Learning
although are open to any novel ideas!
The SLAC Summer Institute (SSI) is an annual two-week-long Summer School tradition since 1973. Lectures are given Monday through Friday each morning. The afternoons contain a mixture of special lectures, topical conference talks, discussion sessions, student projects and tours. In the evenings, there are social activities and student poster sessions. The attendance is typically a mixture from graduate students to postdocs, as well as senior researchers.
The theme of the 2017 SSI will be ''Cosmic Opportunities”, focusing on upcoming opportunities to expand our knowledge and understanding of the physics of the universe via cosmological measurements of CMB, Dark Energy, Dark Matter and Gravitational Waves. New fundamental observations are forthcoming from improved experiments and new frontier facilities. What do we hope to learn from this new information ?
Higgs Couplings 2016 is this year's installment of an annual workshop devoted to new experimental and theoretical results on the Higgs boson.
The theme of the 2016 SSI will be "New Horizons on the Energy Frontier", focusing on the Run 2 LHC, its upgrades and possible future e+e- and hadron colliders.
