Particle physics probes the basic building blocks of matter and their interactions, which determine the structure and properties of the extreme diversity of matter in the universe. The web portal makes the fascinating research understandable to an interested public.more

Unveiling hidden Physics Beyond the Standard Model at the LHC

The workshop will take place March 1-3, 2021

The workshop will be virtual and will include sessions with talks and discussions. A panel discussion will conclude the workshop.

The workshop centres on the fact that model dependent LHC searches have not provided evidence of new resonances, indicating that these could be driven by more subtle topologies, hidden by large backgrounds. Phenomenologists have found many classes of New Physics that are difficult to test with current LHC analyses. In this light it is important to keep investigating what theories could be further explored. In addition we need to elaborate on methodologies that display less model dependencies. The use of Machine Learning may play a critical role here.

The opportunity to test a wider range of New Physics than ever before opened up very recently: CERN announced on the 11th of December 2020 a new open data policy, which will "make scientific research more accessible to the community”:

This is an excellent testing ground for new search strategies.
