Weighing up the LHC’s future

by Michelangelo Mangano

A series of meetings is scheduled throughout 2018 to review and further refine our understanding of the physics potential of the HL-LHC, and to begin a systematic study of physics at the HE-LHC.

The Lifetime Frontier

by David Curtin and Raman Sundrum (University of Maryland)

Searches for new physics at the Large Hadron Collider have so far come up empty, but we just might not be looking in the right place. Spectacular bursts of particles appearing seemingly out of nowhere could shed light on some of nature’s most profound mysteries.

LHC community prepares the High Luminosity Upgrades

by D. Contardo, K. Einsweiler

The 3rd ECFA High-Luminosity LHC Experiments workshop in October was a new opportunity for the LHC community to address widely the preparation of the entire program.
