Berkeley Workshop on High pT Hadron Collider Physics

Berkeley Workshop on
High PT Hadron Collider Physics

Particle Physics has entered an exciting era with the advent of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN allowing to probe the TeV scale in an unprecedented manner. It offers exciting opportunities to understand the Nature of electroweak symmetry breaking and to observe new fundamental particles that may have existed at the beginning of the Universe and may still exist today.

The purpose of this series of workshops is to get theorists and experimentalists together on selected and specific topics regarding the understanding of data at the high energy hadron colliders.

The workshop will in particular address questions regarding physics at the Large Hadron Collider that started operation in 2009. There will typically be one or one workshop per year. The questions addressed in this series will center around the understanding of Standard Model processes and the discussion of searches and interpretations of possible physics beyond the Standard Model. At each workshop the goal is to gather the leading experimentalists and theorists in the particular area to facilitate a lively discussion that may lead to progress in our understanding of the theoretical predictions and uncertainties and in future developments needed in both the experimental and theoretical areas. In particular data from the Tevatron are crucial to understand the current state-of-the-art in hadron collider physics.

Workshop Topics:
This workshop series is organised by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in collaboration with UC Berkeley and the Berkeley Center for Theoretical Physics.
